PREFACE. 

"Whoso resolves to have health, has God on his sid*. 
He that wants health, wants everything. 
The treasurer of the mind is health. 
Health brings pleasure, sickness pain. 
Health is mistress of success. 
A healthy body is the medicine of life." 

The one purpose of this book is to cure the sick by the sim- 
plest and quickest route possible. Only the best and most spe- 
cific treatment is persented. It will be noticed that the "minute 
dose frequently repeated" is used much more often than any 
other. If there is any science in prescribing drugs for the cure 
of the sick, it lies in the above statement quite as much as in 
the judgment exercised in the selection of the drug to be em- 
ployed. The "how" to administer is quite as important as the 
"what" to administer. By reference to my opening remarks in 
Part II. of this book, you will see my reasons for the minute 
dose, as also the method of preparing it. 

Over three hundred of the common diseases affecting man- 
kind are treated in this volume, and also the general indications 
are given for the use of many of the drugs employed. I have 
designed to make this book one of quick and ready reference for 
the doctor and the patient alike. I have filled it with "Succo- 
tash" for the physician, and "Crumbs of Comfort" for the sick. 



To assist in bringing about the faithful and careful perusal 
and use of this book, I have decided to offer a prize of $200.00 to 
those who will favor me with criticisms of it. These criticisms 
may be favorable or adverse, poetical, ironical, humorous or 
silly, or they may be in the form of a caricature or cartoon. 
This offer stands good for eighteen months from date hereof, 
namely : To the person sending the best criticism, $50.00 cash. 
To the two next best, $25.00 each. To the two next best, $15.00 
each. To the two next best, $10.00 each. To the five next best, 
$5.00 each, and for the poorest criticism, $25.00. Photograph 
of the critic must accompany the criticism and become the prop- 
erty of the Author, as also the criticism itself.

INTRODUCTION 



There can be no objection to introduce this volume with a 
text. "He that careth not for his own household, is worse than 
an infidel." — Bible. There is a gospel of health just as truly as 
there is a gospel of salvation, and he who ignores the former 
should forfeit the latter. The gospel of hygiene and sanitation 
in a sick room, and surrounding a sick person, is much more 
important in its relation to recovery than the administrations 
offered by the most skilled physician. When sickness comes to 
a household, the first consideration which should engage the 
attention of the family and the physician alike should be proper 
surroundings and careful nursing for the sick one. In view of 
these facts I will introduce this volume by some considerations 
which I deem important for the care of the sick. 

Inasmuch as that it is the common lot of mankind to suffer 
arn"iction ; it is quite important when a home is being established 
to have in mind a properly appointed and properly located room, 
to be known as the "sick room." This room should be so located 
and so arranged that when sickness comes it can be quickly 
converted into a hospital. The southwest corner of the house is 
the best location for such a room. This affords sunlight, which 
is one of nature's balms of Gilead. It should be located on one 
of the upper floors of the house, where it is free from noise, and 
where the best ventilation can be afforded. As soon, then, as 
sickness comes the victim should be removed to this room, 
where pure air and sunlight and the best possible hygienic meas- 
ures can be offered him. This room should be free from all arti- 



cles of furniture and drapery and ornamentation, except such as 
are absolutely essential for the comfort of the patient. A plain 
bed and mattress with proper clothing, a small table, wash-stand, 
two chairs, one a rocking chair, a couch and a screen are about 
all that are necessary as equipage for such a room. A small rug 
may be placed upon the naked floor to give the room a homelike 
appearance. The walls and ceiling should be free from paper 
and pictures. It is best to have the walls and ceiling painted so 
that they may be washed and thus kept clean. The windows 
should be so arranged that they may be darkened when neces- 
sity requires the room to be made a dark one. The floor of a 
sick room ought by all means to be of polished hardwood. The 
temperature of the sick room should be kept, night and day, at 
about 69 F. If sickness comes in summer the temperature can 
be lowered by dipping a sheet in cold water and suspending it 
in the room where a draught of air can come in contact with it. 

The next thought that should engage the attention of an 
afflicted family is the selection of professional help. Families 
are not under obligation to employ a certain physician because 
of any peculiar social relationships, or neighborhood ties, or 
family consanguinity, nor because he is a handsome man and 
therefore full of brains, but because of sound judgment and 
thorough tuition and preparation for the "work of life" in which 
he is engaged. 

The next care should be the selection of the nurse. She or 
he may in some cases be selected in the family, and should have 
no other care nor service ; but should become the body servant 
and guardian angel of the sick one. By all means avoid that 
fidgity, fussy, nervous, or morose "Betsy Bobbits," which some- 
times infests a neighborhood under the pretention of being a 
nurse. A calm and thoughtful temperament that will not exceed 
the exact limits of necessity toward the patient, and who has not 



an ungovernable desire to do works of supererogation, is the 
person to be selected as a nurse. This individual is to carefully 
and scrupulously carry into effect the directions and advice of 
the physician. If a preference should be stated for a good nurse, 
or a good doctor, it would be the former. 

The patient should receive only such attention as will make 
him the most comfortable — administering food and medicines, 
baths, and massage — under the guidance of the physician — re- 
cording faithfully all symptoms of importance as well as the 
temperature and pulse of the patient. The normal temperature 
is 98.6 and the normal pulse about 70 per minute, and the nor- 
mal respiration 18 per minute. The selection of food depends 
entirely upon the disease with which the patient is contending, 
and should be selected upon the combined experience of the 
physician and nurse. In every sick-room there should be a con- 
spicuous and glorious absence of those visiting angels whose 
stock-in-trade, usually, is to rehearse in the hearing of the sick 
the awful disasters that have befallen many of their acquaint- 
ances who were similarly afflicted. Clergymen should always 
be admitted to the sacred and solemn abodes of the afflicted, but 
not those religious worms who bore into and agitate the souls 
of the afflicted with incessant exhortations built upon the awful- 
ness oi death. Conversations and themes that tend to inspire 
and stimulate the soul, have a similar effect in arousing to life 
and health the body of the sick. 



PART I. 
DISEASES AND THEIR TREATMENT. 



ANAESTHESIA. 

GENERAL ANAESTHETICS. 

It is very important that a patient to be operated upon has a 
restful night before the operation. This is imperative. Codeine 
one grain for an adult and Passirlora 1J teaspoonfuls will accom- 
plish this much better than anything else. Children should take 
half the quantity. Do not give Opium nor Morphine. 

Chloroform is the best and safest anaesthetic for general use. 
Use an Esmarch Inhaler, admitting plenty of air and going 
slowly at the beginning. The respirations, the action' of 
the heart, and response of the eye to light, are the three things 
to be observed constantly during the administration of every 
anaesthetic. If the eye fails to respond to the effect of light, 
great danger is present. Or if snoring occurs danger is present. 
Do not resist the patient in the delirium of the first stage, es- 
pecially persons accustomed to alcoholic drinks. Do not pro- 
duce respirations by compression at the line of the diaphragm. 
Prolonged or interrupted, or suspended breathing is best cor- 
rected by forced elevation of the chin, thus affecting the pneu- 
mogastric nerve and bringing the respiratory organs to their 
proper work. Slow anaesthesia may be improved by occasion- 
ally pinching the thigh. Chloroform is the proper anaesthetic 
for children, confining women, and old persons. Also where 
kidney difficulties are present. It acts better, lasts longer, and 
is much more safe by adding 1-10 of Turpentine to it. Chloro- 
form and Ether should never be given to diabetic patients. 

Ether. In the use of this anaesthetic observe all that has been 
said of Chloroform with the following observations: For the 
first 5 or 8 minutes admit plenty of air in the use of Ether, after 
which exclude the air. Protect the eyes. Never give this 
anaesthetic in the presence of a lighted lamp or candle or gas, 



12 ANAESTHESIA 

unless the flames are high above the patient. Ether is a good 
stimulant for the heart but acts badly in kidney and bronchial 
diseases, and in old people, and women dn labor, and very young 
children. Never give hypodermic injections of Alcohol and 
Whiskey in the syncope of Ether, but give Amyl or Strychnine, 
or Nitro-Glycerine. Never mix Alcohol, Ether and Chloroform 
for use as an anaesthetic. Their effect as anaesthetics is quite 
different, and therefore you will be liable to lose your way. 

Turpencine inhalations are nearly as good as Chloroform or Ether 
and are safer as an anaesthetic. 

LOCAL ANAESTHETICS. 

Ethyl Chloride is the best local anaesthetic. 

Cocaine Hydro-Chlorate in from 5 to 20% solutions applied is 
the best for the mucus tissues of the nose, mouth, throat, eye, 
vagina, rectum, urethra, etc. 

Carbolic Acid, pure, applied to the skin, renders it insensible to 
pain. A boil or abcess may be lanced without suffering. 

Ice, Snow, or Water put into a tin cup and salt added, then set 
the cup upon the region to be operated upon and stir the 
mixture for 10 minutes, and the parts will become insensible 
to pain. 

Aniline Oil, applied, will render the opening of a boil, etc., painless. 

Ice Water, 30 drops injected underneath or near a skin surface to 
be operated upon, renders it insensible to pain. This is un- 
equaled also for local neuralgia.

HYPNOTIC ANAESTHESIA. 

Breathing full, deep, and rapidly as possible and insensibility 
will soon occur. 

Gazing steadfastly at a bright object with eyes turned slightly 
upward and to the left, and in a few minutes the patient is hyp- 
notized and rendered insensible to pain. 

ASTHMA. 

Alkalithia, in the usual dose and persisted in, will cure Asthma of 
years' standing. 

Naphthalin, mixed in sugar of milk one part to twenty, and given 
in four or five grain doses every three or four hours, will 
act like magic in spasmodic asthma and Hay Fever. This must 
be thoroughly ground in a mortar before giving. 

Atropin Sulph, 1-100 grain hypodermically, will relieve in two 
minutes. 

Ethyl Chloride, sprayed up and down the back, quickly relieves. 

Sulphide of Soda, in ordinary doses, is a good remedy. 



14 ASTHMA 

Arsenic, in minute doses, will relieve that form of Asthma that 
occurs always after midnight, and is spasmodic. 

Asthmatics are Always Dispeptics — Correct the digestion in time of 
peace, and thus prevent the attack altogether. 

Amyl Nitrite, by inhalation, is an instant relief. 

Turpentine, by inhalation, is also very good. 

Fl. Ex. Jaborandi, four drops in the morning and at noon, and 
eight drops at night, is unequalled as a protective. 

Ambrosia, in minute doses, is a specific for Hay Asthma. Try it 
once and smile.

Arsenite of Strychnine, 1-100 grain every two hours, quickly relieves 
Asthma. 



AGUE 15 

Iodine, painted down the sides of the neck, will relieve in two 
minutes. 

Local Treatment in Hay Fever must be antiseptic. Glycozone is 
one of the best. 

Wear Antiseptic Absorbent Cotton that has been subjected to the 
fumes of Vinegar (or wet in Vinegar and dried), in each nostril 
Huring the period of Hay Asthma. This is a sure relief. Or 
wear a sponge wrung out of vinegar over the nose. This is a 
positive preventive in every case. 

Marchand's Hydrozone and Glycozone are specific if used as 
preventives. 

See "Hay Fever." 

AGUE (Chills and Fever). 

Salt, ground to a fine soft powder and mixed with Sugar of Milk, 
1 part to 100 parts of Sugar Milk, and then reground for an 
hour. Take four or five grains every hour. This is a sure 
cure for old cases of Ague where Quinine has been used. 

Tinct. Gelsemium, in three-drop doses, will cure any case of Ague 
that occurs in a non-malarial district. This is specific. 

Nitric Acid (dilute), five drops in gum water, and give every two 
or three hours, will cure any case in three days. 

Chiniodine. Take a piece of the stick, the size of a pea, every three 
hours for a few days; then less frequently until all is well. 
This is a grand remedy. 

Gunpowder, burned every day in the room or tent, and among 
the clothing, will prevent the contagion of any disease, es- 
pecially Malarial troubles. 



16 ACNE 

Salt, in teaspoonful doses just as you feel the chill coming, will 
break up any case of Ague. 

In cases of chronic Ague, sugar is always found in the urine. 
Correct it and the patient is well. 



ACNE. 

Acne is usually a reflex trouble from the genital organs, except 
such as appears on the nose, this is from the stomach. 

If in a boy introduce a cold steel sound into the penis every 
day for 15 to 20 minutes, and the Acne soon disappears. 

If in a girl, use hot water douches with Tinct. of Camphor, 12 
drops to a pint of water every night on retiring. These are sure 
cures. 

Sulphur, in minute doses at bedtime, is an elegant remedy. 

Tinct. Pulsatilla, in three drop doses, is choice for girls. 

Tinct. Belladonna, one drop four times daily, for boys. 

Arsenic, in minute doses, is an excellent remedy for all skin affec- 
tions, where dry scales or roughness exists. 

Hepar Sulphur, in minute doses, will cure all cases of Acne of the 
suppurating sort (pimples). 

Hot Water to the face for half an hour every day, will cure Acne.

APPENDICITIS. 

An inflammation of the appendix is due more frequently to the 
glands surrounding and adjacent to it, than to obstruction in the 
lumen of the organ itself. Peri, and Para-typhilitis are much more 
common than Appendicitis, and surgical interference is oftener 
resorted to for the former troubles than the latter. Out of 21 cases 
which I have observed, only 7 required operation. Nevertheless, the 
21 went through the ordeal. 

It is not an easy task for the surgeon to know positively the full 
extent of his duty in these cases, and therefore he is justified in pro- 
ceeding with his work of removal. Appendicitis is a disease which 



!8 ABSCESS 

is not very easy of diagnosis at times. The temperature is usually 
nearly normal. Its pain is not always severe. It may progress slowly 
and deceptively to a sudden and fatal termination. The pulse will 
indicate the formation of pus, as a rule, and vomiting may be present. 
There may be Diarrhoea or Constipation. The pain and tenderness 
and circumscribed swelling are quite indicative of the disease. In the 
acute form, the pain is generally reflected to the region of the um- 
bilicus, and the tenderness and swelling are the only symptoms that 
are purely local at the seat of the organ itself. 

TREATMENT. 

The medical treatment is very simple and successful. 

Being fully satisfied of the trouble, and it being the first attack 
the patient has had, proceed as follows : 

Administer at once a grain of Calomel every hour, until 8 or 10 
doses are taken. Repeat this after 24 hours have elapsed. Then 
repeat in three days. The use of the drug is not especially for its 
antisepsis, but it affords a mild secretion and stool; while the Saline 
Cathartics produce violent watery dejections. This last may be 
given at the end of the fifth day, or the morning of the sixth. No 
other remedies are required. If the pain is severe, control it by 
an Enema of Asafoetida, 10 or 15 grains dissolved in an ounce or 
two of hot milk. Never give Opium in any form, neither before 
nor after operation, in cases of Appendicitis. 

At the outset, apply the ice-bag over the seat of the organ, and 
continue it night and day for six days. If repeated chills occur, 
look out for pus. Pyaemic chills and increased size of pulse gener- 
ally indicate operative procedure, and interference. 



ABSCESS. 

Never lance nor open an abscess or boil until absolutely neces- 
sary. It admits the air and increases the inflammation. Do not 



ABSCESS 19 

pick off the white point of pimples. They often become large 
boils by this act. 

Hepar Sulphur, in minute doses, will often prevent Abscesses and 
Boils. 

Silicea will quickly open a Boil or Abscess, when given in large 
homeopathic doses. 

Give Sulphur in minute doses at bedtime only. 

If there is a general tendency to Abscess formation, it is due to 
kidney or liver derangement. Sulphuric Acid, two or three drops 
diluted in plenty of water two or three times daily, will correct the 
tendency, if persisted in. 

Cabbage Leave Poultices are very choice for all Abscess formations. 
So also Potatoe Water, applied by the use of flannels wrung 
out of the water while hot. 

Menthol, 40% solution applied, will prevent Abscesses, Boils, etc., 
etc., and also itching eruptions. 

Flour and Lard, mixed in equal parts, will bring Boils and Abscesses 
to a head in a few hours. Try it and see. 

Carbolic Acid, pure, one drop injected with a hypodermic needle 
into the center of the Boil or Abscess, or Carbuncle, will open 
it in one minute, without any knife. 

Caustic Potash, applied the size of a grain of wheat, will do the 
business in an hour. 

For deep Abscesses, such as may form in the hip or abdomen, 
or other deep structures, make a solution of — 

IJ Iodoform grs. xx 

Olive Oil 5 i y 



20 AMENORRHEA 

^i Heat the solution each time it is to be used, anB the 
powder dissolves. Inject it freely with a pointed glass 
or rubber syringe, or hypodermic needle. No fear of 
disturbance from its use. It will heal a deep Abscess 
quicker than anything else. It is specific for hip-joint 
Abscess. If a sinus forms, pack it with Lactopeptin, 
or make a strong solution in hot water and inject it 
twice daily. 



AMENORRHEA. 

In delayed monthly do not give Emenegogues (something to 
force a flow) ; it is ruinous to the case. Find the cause and remove it. 

Pulsatilla, in minute doses, is the true remedy, especially for blonde, 
mild girls with mild, tearful dispositions. 

Phosphorus, in drop doses of the tincture, is the true remedy for 
tall, dark girls. 

Aletris, in 10-drop doses, will improve any derangement of the 
genital system. If organic difficulties exist, such as imperforate 
hymen, etc., surgical methods must be adopted. 

If a "baby womb or ovaries" are found, use the battery mildly 
every day. 

Calcarea Carb., in minute doses, is the true remedy for fat, phleg- 
matic girls. 

Indigo, in 10-grain doses, will force a flow in 30 minutes. 

Permanganate of Potash, in 2-grain capsules, will bring a flow in 
a few days. 

Apiol, in 5-grain capsules morning and evening, will bring a flow 
and produce an abortion in a week.

Helonine, in minute doses, is a grand remedy for delayed monthly 
and womb trouble where there is depression of mind. 

Santonine, in 5-grain doses once daily, is the proper thing for Chlo- 
rotic patients with this trouble, unless kidney diseases are pres- 
ent. Then it should not be given at all. 

ABORTION. 

PREVENTIVE TREATMENT. 

Secale Cornutum, given in minute doses every hour or two for some 
days, will prevent Abortions at the third month. 

Sabina, also in minute doses, is well-nigh a specific for Abortions 
during the first month, and where pain is from the back to 
the pubis. 



22 ANAEMIA 

Rest and Tampons, to support the womb, will sometimes suffice. 
Aletris, in 10-drop doses, is a grand remedy. 

If there is much hemorrhage, give teaspoonful doses of ordinary 
brown Vinegar, or 6-drop doses of the Tinct. of Cinnamon in hot 
water. 

If the case is hopeless, anaethetize the patient and remove the 
contents of the womb surgically, providing it be a case up to the 
third month. If pregnancy has existed longer than this, leave it to 
nature; of course, always interfering if the case requires it. 

If the contents of the womb are to be cast out, and hemorrhages 
with little pain are occurring, pack the vaginal vault firmly with 
absorbent cotton, and remove it in 12 hours, or sooner if necessary, 
when the contents of the womb will follow. Ipecac, two grains, will 
help you. 

Hot Water Douches, in large quantities, are perfect master of hem- 
orrhages accompanying all Abortions and Confinements. 

Treat the case with as much consideration as if normal labor 
were ensuing. 

Administer, after "the event," Arnica and China Tincture, in 
2-drop doses in alternation every hour or two. 

ANAEMIA. 

Pepto-Mangan (Gude) is the first remedy for this condition; given 
in 2-teaspoonful doses after meals. 

Next best is Nitrogenized Iron (Susquechloride of Iron, Ova of 
Albumen, and Soda mixed). Two teaspoonfuls after meals. 

Arsenic, in minute doses, is choice where there is a pale, waxy face, 
or bloating of hands and face. 

Gray's Glycerine Tonic is very fine for these cases. 



APHONIA— APHTHAE 23 

Constipation is frequently the direct cause of Anaemia and 
Chlorosis. Clear the bowel by a continuous dosage of mild Laxa- 
tive, such as Warner's Peristaltic Pills, two every night for a week; 
then one every night until the bowel is all right. This is imperative. 

Phosphate of Iron should be given to such cases, once every day, 
in grain doses. 

Tinct. Prickly Ash, 5 drops every three or four hours, is a very fine 
tonic for these cases. 

In Chlorosis, if Iron fails, give Sulphur in minutes doses. It is 
specific. 

APHONIA. 

Argentum Metalicum, in minute doses, is specific in sudden loss. of 
voice in professional speakers. 

Borax Crystals, 1 grain dissolved in the mouth, quickly relieves. 

Drosera, in minute doses, is excellent for all constrictions of the 
vocal cords or larynx. 

Moschus, in minute doses, will restore the voice in hysterical persons. 
Use Electricity. 

APHTHAE (Sore Mouth). 

Arum Triphillum (Indian turnip, "jack in the Pulpit"), in minute 
doses, for superficial ulcers and burning in the mouth. 

Sulphuric Acid, in 5-drop doses, well diluted in water, for bleeding- 
gums and moisture in the mouth. 

Arsenic, in minute doses, where the edges of the tongue are ulcerated, 
and having great prostration with diarrhoea. 



24 AFTER-PAINS 

Borax and Honey, mixed in any quantity, is an excellent wash. 

Fluid Hydrastis | Xon-Alcoholic), mixed with water, one part to ten, 
is ven- soothing and healing. Let the patient swallow the fluid, 
as it acts well upon the stomach and bowels. 

Argentum Xitricum, in minute doses, is also ven* choice, especially 
where the corners of the mouth and inside of the cheeks are 
cracked and ulcerated. 

Bismuth Sub. Nitrate, applied to a sore mouth, and swallowing 5 or 
10 grains two or three times daily, works wonders. 

Mercurius Vivus, in minute doses, is specific for ulcers of the mouth 
with great salivation, and stick}-, gummy teeth. 

Xitric Acid, 5 or 10 drops in a glass of water, giving a teaspoonful 
every two or three hours, is the true and only remedy for ulcera- 
tions caused by Mercury, and where bleeding occurs. 



AFTER-PAINS. 

Amyl Xitrite. by inhalation, and giving a minute dose even' 1" or 
15 minutes, will stop after-pains. 

Vinegar, in teaspoonful doses, will arrest after-pains and flooding. 

Prickly Ash Tincture, in five drop doses on sugar even- few hours, 
is magical in effect. 

Tinct. Gelsemium, in five drop doses in hot water even- half hour, 
is master of the situation, and the safest and best remedy. 
Try it. 

Caulophyllin, in J grain doses three or four times daily, for two 
or three weeks before confinement, and there will be no After- 
pains, and the labor will be very easy. 



ANTISEPTICS 25 

Macrotin, mixed with Sugar of Milk, one part to ten, and given in 
four grain doses every 20 to 30 minutes, controls After-pains 
at once. 



ANTISEPTICS. 

Vinegar is the best and safest antiseptic, used clear or in water. 

Bi-Chloride of Mercury, 7-J grains to the quart of water, is the best 
for all external wounds. Never use it in the cavities of the body. 

Salicylic Acid in water is good as follows — 

5 Salicylic Acid grs. i 

Acid Boracic grs. iv 

Salt grs. iij 

Water i 

^i This is the formula for Thiersch's solution for Skin 
Grafting use. 

External Wounds should be kept pure by covering them with 
Iodocrol Pulv., or Acetanelid mixed with Boracic Acid equal 
parts. 

Charcoal, pulverized, is a fine dressing for wounds. It keeps them 
pure and clean. 

There can be no better nor cheaper dressing for wounds, than Burnt 
Strati'. It is antiseptic and keeps wounds clean. 

Mud, fresh and moist, is magical in its purifying and healing 
properties. 

Oil of Peppermint is the safest and best antiseptic in the world, and 
is absolutely safe in any dose or applied in any way. 



26 APPARENT DEATH— APOPLEXY— BABY 

APPARENT DEATH. 

Hold up the finger point to a bright reflected light, and if death 
is present, the finger-point will look dark, almost black. If it is 
red, life is present. 

Inject pure liquor Ammonia, five drops, under the skin and if 
life is present, it will become red. If death be present, no effect 
is noticed. 

Tie a string tightly around a finger, and if life is present, it will 
become dark. 

Apply a lighted match to the end of the great toe, and if life is 
present, a blister will occur. 

APOPLEXY. 

Aconite, Belladonna, or Yeratrum Yiride, in minute doses fre- 
quently repeated, stand in the front rank. 

Persons inclined to Apoplexy should take a dose or two of Phosphate 
of Iron every day and drink large quantities of buttermilk. 
This will protect from an attack. 

Numbness of hands and feet, or legs, or arms in persons past 40 
years of age, is ominous of approaching Apoplexy. Numb- 
ness of one finger is indicative of Kidney disease. 

BABY. 

For syncope at birth, turn the baby upside down and slap the hip 
with the hand. The youngster will soon breathe. 

Use Artificial respiration. Dash cold water into the face. 

Do not cut the cord until the baby breathes. Cause the mother to 
take full deep breaths. It quickens the blood and causes the 
child to breathe. 



BED-SORES— BILIOUSNESS 27 

BED-SORES. 

Administer Arsenic in 3 drop doses of Fowlers Solution every 4 
hours. 

Alcohol frequently applied cures Bed-sores. 

Resinol, applied, is the best remedy and cures quickly. 

Mineral Earth or Common Clay, pulverized, is an excellent dressing 
when mixed with Bismuth equal parts. 

Have the patient lie upon the hair of a deer-skin, or a buffalo-skin, 
and Bed-sores will not occur. 

Calomel Powder, dusted on Bed-sores, keeps them clean and healthy 
and will destroy maggots, etc. 

If Camphorae o ss 

Fl. Mucillage Accacia § i

M: sig. Shake well and dip pledges of lint into the solu- 
tion and dress the sore twice daily. Thoroughly re- 
liable in any case. 

BILIOUSNESS. 

Lemonade every morning without sugar, will not only prevent, but 
cure Biliousness. 

Podophyllin, in J grain doses every night at bed-time, soon cor- 
rects the trouble. 

Sodium Sulph., in two grain doses in water three times daily, cures 
all such cases in a short time. 

Bilious people should eat everything that is fit for food and plenty 
of it, and forget that they have a stomach. This soon cures without 
medicine.

Uva Ursi is likewise an excellent remedy. 

Benzoic Acid, 10 grains in an ounce of Alcohol, and take five drops 
of the solution on sugar three or four times daily, will purify 
bad smelling urine and correct the tendency to decomposition.

BLEEDING— BIRTH-MARK 29 

Tinct. Asparagus, in minute doses, will cure stinking urine. 

Cina, in minute doses, will sweeten urine, especially where the 
patient is always wanting to eat something. 

Tinct. Cantharis, five drops in a half glass of water, and take a tea- 
spoonful every two or three hours, is a specific for Cystitis 
where there is a feeling as if not through passing urine, with 
intense sexual irritability. 

Carbonate of Lithia, three to six grain doses, will relieve Cystitis in 
a few hours. 

Buttermilk, in large quantities, every day a gallon, will cure Bladder 
troubles of every sort. 

For dribbling urine give the following — 

5 Fl. Ex. Ergot 5 ss 

Strychnine 1% sol. gtts. ij 

M sig. Give this dose in Chloroform water three times 
daily. This is a choice remedy for wetting the bed, 
and hysterical paralysis of the bladder of young women. 

Fl. Ex. Ergot, \ teaspoonful in warm water, and injected into an 
inflamed or relaxed bladder, is one of the most valuable reme- 
dies known. Resorcin, 2% solution in water, is an excellent 
injection for Cystitis. Baracic Acid, 10% in water acts well. 
Glycerine and Cocaine must never be used in an irritable 
bladder. 

BLEEDING. 

See Hemorrhage. 

BIRTH-MARK. 

Paint them with Collodion and they will soon disappear. 

Needles pushed through a cork so that the points just come 
through, then dip these points into strong Nitric Acid and quickly 
press them into the mark. It cures in one week. 



30 BLISTERS— BLISTERING 

Paint them night and morning with Liquor Arsenicalis until 
ulceration takes place. Be careful of the skin around the naevus. 



BLISTERS (on Lips). 

Tinct. Arnica, five drops in half glass of water, take a teaspoonful 
every hour or two. It soon cures. 

Common Table Salt, five grains in half glass of water, and take a 
teaspoonful every hour. This will cure speedily. 

Apply Camphorated Oil or Camphor Spirits. The first is best. 



BLISTERING (Plasters). 

Paint lightly with the Tinct. of Cantharis, over the region to be 
blistered, and soon one occurs. 

Be careful to watch the conduct of the Kidneys while using Can- 
tharis, and if any trouble occurs with them, give Flax Seed Tea 
plentifully. 

Croton Oil, painted on the parts to be blistered, will produce a crop 
of fine blisters in quick time. 

Mustard Paste will soon produce a blister. 

The best and safest plaster is the following — 

Take common adhesive strap, the size required for the blister and 
sprinkle on it finely pulverized Chloral. Warm the plaster and 
apply. In a few minutes it blisters. It may be allowed to remain 
on until the sore is well. This is a painless blister. 

Mustard, if mixed with flour and vinegar, will not blister, but pro- 
duces fine counter irritation. 



BLOOD TEST— BLOOD POISONING 31 



For a painless blistering piaster use the following — 

IJ Chloral Hydrate \^ ' 

Camphor Gum J *" 

^i and apply. This mixture makes a fluid. 



BLOOD TEST. 

Add a little bile to the blood to be tested, and if it is human, 
small right-angled crystals are seen. 
If horse's blood, cubes are seen. 
If pig's blood, right-angled prisms are seen. 
If sheep's blood, rhomboidal plates are seen. 
If chicken's blood, cubes more or less regular are seen. 
If dog's blood, the same precisely as man's blood. 
These are the microscopial tests. 



BLOOD POISONING. 

Tinct. Baptisia stands in the front rank for Blood Poisoning. Give 
it in three to five drop doses every hour or two for several days, 
and no other remedy will be needed. 

Arsenic, in 1-50 grain doses, is also very good. 

Glycerine should be applied freely to the wound which gives rise 
to the poisoning. 

If the trouble arises in one of the extremities and suppuration 
occurs and extends toward the body, the parts should be laid open 
lengthwise of the extremity with the knife. Long gashes should 
be made and Glycerine poultices applied. 



32 BOILS— FURNUCLES— CARBUNCLES (CHRONIC) 

BOILS— FURUNCLES— CARBUNCLES (Chronic). 

First of all things to be done, is to correct the Kidney troubles 
that invariably exist where Boils, etc., occur. 

Gun-Powder, in -J teaspoonful doses every day, is a good remedy. 

Sulphuric Acid, diluted in water, three or four drops every four or 
five hours, is choice. A weak solution of the same should be 
applied. 

Sulphide of Arsenic, in 1-50 grain doses five or six times daily, 
is a sure and certain remedy for Boils, etc., etc., also for Ton- 
silitis. 

Tinct. Colchicum, in small doses, is the true remedy for Boils where 
Rheumatism is present. 

Strong Solution of Chloral Hydrate in water and Glycerine, applied 
early, will without one failure abort Boils, Furuncles, and Car- 
buncles. Try it and smile. 

Cabbage is the best poultice for these troubles. 

For Carbuncles apply early, equal parts of Camphor Spirits and 
Lime water. It will abort them. 

Coal Tar, mixed in soap water (strong solution) five parts to twenty, 
is an anodyne for Boils and Felons. Nothing that equals it. 
It soothes the pain and brings great comfort to the afflicted. 

Silicea, in ordinary doses given often, will open a Boil in 24 hours. 
Give five grain doses every hour or two. 

Hepar Sulphur, in minute doses every four or five hours, will soon 
cure these troubles after they have opened. 

See "Abscesses." 



BONES— BOWELS 33 

BONES. 

Fluoric and Phosphoric Acids, in minute doses, are the choice rem- 
edies for ulceration of Bones. 

Phosphate of Lime, in minute doses, given frequently, is master of 
all ulcerations of the Bones and the soft tissues. It is a specific 
remedy. 

Bone-pain at night will be cured by minute doses of Mercury Vivus, 
two or three times daily. 

Silicea, in minute doses, is a remedy of prime importance for all 
bone decay. The administration of the remedy must not be 
employed continuously. The usual use made of the drug, is to 
exhibit it in large doses for 12 or 15 hours, and then no medicine 
at all for one month. 

BOWELS. 

INFLAMMATION OF THE BOWELS. 

Turpentine, in drop doses on sugar every hour, for inflammation of 
the Bowel. This is specific. At the same time apply over the 
belly, Castor Oil one ounce, and Turpentine one drachm, and 
rub the belly well with this mixture every day and cover with 
hot flannel. 

Salol, five grains and Bismuth Sub. Nit, 10 grains, repeated every 
four or five hours, is specific for Enteritis. 

Colocynth Tincture, drop doses on sugar, is a grand remedy for 
the pain of inflammation of the bowel. 

Arsenite of Copper, 1-100 grain every five hours, cures in 24 to 48 
hours. 



34 BOWELS 

Mercurius Bi-Chloride, 1-50 grain every six hours, is also a fine 
remedy. 

Epsom Salts, in teaspoonful doses every two hours until free move- 
ment of the bowel occurs, will reduce the inflammation in 24 
hours, especially if the peritoneum is affected. 

Never give Opium nor Morphine in these cases, unless the patient 
is abstaining from food. Even then they are injurious. 

Asafoetida, 10 to 15 grains in hot milk and injected into the rectum 
every two or three hours, relieves the pain at once. 

Hot Water enemas relieve the pain. 

Tinct. Baptisia, in five drop doses on sugar every two hours, is an 
antiseptic for the bowel, and will result gratefully to all patients. 



BOWEL OBSTRUCTION. 



Use a bellows and fill the bowel slowly with air. Relief is instant. 

Flush the bowel with two or three gallons of water in which an 
ounce of Camphor tincture is put. This is a certain relief for Bowel 
Obstruction. 

Don't use Glycerine in any form for Bowel Obstruction. It pro- 
duces too much straining and contracts the bowel. 

Place a chew of Black Tobacco on the navel, and press it firmly 
for an hour, will open the bowel at once by relaxation and vomiting. 

Salt Water is good, three or four quarts in the bowel at a time. 

Pure Coal Oil, two quarts high up in the bowel, is well recommended 
and proved valuable: 



BRAIN 35 

BRAIN. 

For Hemorrhage, see "Apoplexy." 

INFLAMMATION OF THE BRAIN. 

Tincts of Aconite and Belladonna stand in the front rank. Red face 
and bounding pulse. 

Tinct. Gelsemium, in frequent two drop doses, is very fine when 
the head feels as if a band were around it. 

Hellebore, in minute doses, for Meningitis where the head is rolled 
on the pillow and the arms are in constant motion, and the 
urine suppressed. 

Nitro-Glycerine, in 1-100 grain doses repeated, is quite curative in 
cases of awful throbbing headache, and the whole face and 
jaw affected. 

Yeratrum Viride, in three drop doses of the tincture, is specific. 
No other remedy is needed. Repeated every two or three 
hours. This is better than bleeding. 

Belladonna is a good remedy for Cerbro-Spinal Meningitis. One 
drop doses of the tincture repeated every hour. 

No remedy stands so high in respect to cure, as Cicuta Virosa 
for Cerbro-Spinal Meningitis. Give drop doses of the tincture 
every 30 minutes for the first 12 hours, then every two or three 
hours. It is absolutely specific. I have known no drug that meets, 
so thoroughly, hopeless cases better than this, and even where the 
sight of one eye is lost, and respirations hardly perceptible. It 
cures in a week. 

Veratrum Alb., in minute doses, is excellent for the collapse of these 
cases, where cold sweat appears on the face. 



36 BREASTS 

HYDROCEPHALUS. 

For water on the Brain, give Arnica, in minute doses. It stands 
first in rank, and will cure all cases if used early. 

Apis Melifica, in minute doses, is next in rank, later in the disease. 

BRAIN FAG. 

Phosphorus is the remedy. Two drop doses of the tincture four 
times daily. 

Phosphoric Acid, diluted, is also excellent. 

SOFTENING OF THE BRAIN. 

Phosphate of Potash is the only remedy needed in softening of the 
Brain. Give it in minute doses frequently repeated. 

BREASTS. 

For caked breasts or nipples, apply a 3% or 4% solution of 
Boracic Acid, and cover with flannel to prevent evaporation. 

Hydrastis Root, mixed with 10% of sugar of milk, and applied after 
nursing each time, soon cures the chapped and cracked nipples. 
If the baby has a sore mouth, do not wash the application off. 

Tinct. Callendula, 10% in Glycerine, is specific for sore nipples. 

Oil of Spearmint applied as follows: One drachm in two ounces of 
Olive Oil and applied, will not only cure cracked nipples, but 
caked breasts. 

Phytolacca, in three drop doses every three or four hours, and a 
salve made of the same with Lanolin, will cure all tendency 
to abscess of the breasts. This is a grand specific. 



BREATH 37 

Bismuth and Castor Oil, equal parts by weight, mixed and applied, 
is good for cracks. 

To increase the flow of milk, have the mother drink Schlitz's malt 
Beer, or oatmeal water freely, and take by the mouth the following: 
Tinct. of Galega, one drachm every five or six hours in plenty of 
water. 

Sulphurous Acid, in water one part to seven, and given often dur- 
ing the day, will cure swollen cracked breasts. 

Ice in a rubber bag, applied to the back, opposite the Breasts, will 
increase their size. Hot water used the same way, will diminish 
their size. 

Tinctures of Belladonna and Camphor, one part to ten parts, will 
dry up the milk in the Breasts without fail. Apply it three or 
four times daily all over the chest and neck. 

Camphorated Oil is excellent, applied the same way. 

BREATH. 

For offensive Breath, give Baptisia tincture, in two or three drop 
doses. It will purify it. 

The best remedy, is to correct the digestion and attend to the 
teeth. 

Figs, boiled in milk, and drank before going to bed, will purify the 
breath and aid in digestion. 

Permanganate of Potash, one grain to the ounce of water, and rinse 
the mouth well, will not only purify the breath, but stop tooth- 
ache and prevent disease of the teeth. 

Walnut pits, eaten, will purify the breath even though you eat onions. 



38 BRONCHITIS 

Listerine will do the same. One teaspoonful clear or in water, will 
disguise the odor of onions. 

Chlorine water, 10% solution, will cover up Tobacco breath. 
Cardamon Seeds, eaten, disguise whiskey breath. 

BRONCHITIS. 

ACUTE FORM. 

Veratrum Viride, 20 drops in half glass of water, 2 teaspoonfuls 
every 2 hours, will soon relieve the trouble. Nothing else 
needed in average cases. 

Tinct. Caustic Ammonia, one to two drops in plenty of water every 
hour or two, is a wonderful remedy for all acute forms of Lung 
trouble, especially Bronchitis and Pleurisy. 

Tinct. Aconite, in drop doses repeated every hour, is a very reliable 
remedy. 

Iodine Tincture, put into hot water and inhale the fumes, is good 
treatment for either acute or chronic Bronchitis. 

Phosphate of Iron, in minute doses, will control in 24 hours any 
case of Bronchitis that is acute. Five grains every two hours. 

CHRONIC FORM. 

Syrup Iodide of Iron, in teaspoonful doses, is the true remedy. 

Bichromate of Potash, in minute doses, where the secretions are 
yellow and ropy. 

Tartar Emetic, in very minute doses, where the secretions are diffi- 
cult to cough up, and the throat is full of rattling phlegm. 

Burn Sulphur in the patient's room, and the relief is marvelous. 



BRUISES 39 

Two very choice prescriptions for Bronchitis, either acute or 
chronic, as well as all forms of cough, are — 

^ Balsam Fir -> 

Balsam Tolu Laa § iss

M sig. Two teaspoonfuls every three or four hours. 
These are choice. 



BRUISES. 

Arnica Tincture, in drop doses in water, is the first remedy to think 
of for Bruises. Give it every two or three hours. 

Camphor Tincture and water, one part to 50, and applied by cloths 
soaked in this solution, is the best application for recent Bruises. 

Pond's Extract is a good application, equal parts with Bay Rum 
or Gin. 

To prevent discoloration of a bruised face, or eye, paint the parts 
with a strong solution of Capsicum tincture. This is the pugilist's 
safeguard against "black eyes." 

Starch, moistened and applied, will remove all discoloratons of the 
skin. 

Beefsteak and Rotten Apples are good poultices for bruises. 

See "Sprains." (Gargling Oil.) 



40 BUNIONS— BURNS AND SCALDS 

BUNIONS. 

Tinct. Veratrum Viride, applied every two or three hours, will 
quickly remove all the tenderness of Bunions, and reduce the 
inflammation. Continue the application for a day or two. 

Soap, of the ordinary kind applied as a plaster, is good for Bunions. 

]$ Carbolic Acid 5 ij 

Tinct. Iodine 5 ij 

Glycerine 5 ss 

M and apply with a brush every day lightly. Sure cure 

for Bunions of every sort. 

BURNS AND SCALDS. 

The first remedy as an application, is equal parts of Lime water 
and Olive Oil, mixed and applied freely. Cover with a soft cloth 
and repeat often. This excludes the air and heals the injury, and is 
the celebrated Carron Oil. 

Anything that will exclude the air, is a proper application for 
Burns and Scalds, except such as contain Starch. The starch cakes 
and sticks to the injury. 

Pulverized Charcoal is a remedy of prime importance. Put it on 
thickly and dry. 

Burnt Flour is good. 

Never put cold water applications upon burns and scalds. Hot 
water or holding the burnt surface to the stove, is a proper thing 
' to do. Heat extracts the burn. 

Alcohol, made cold by ice, is a good application. 

Cantharis, five drops of the tincture in a glass of hot water and 
applied, is a good dressing. 



CANCER 41 

Oil of Peppermint, applied, stops pain and burning instantly. 

Eggs, yolk and all, is one of the very best dressings for Burns and 
Scalds. 

Lanolin is a very choice application. Open all blisters first. 

White Lead Paint, mixed to the consistency of cream with Lin- 
seed Oil, is all right. 

Oxide of Zinc Ointment, may be used with good success. 

If ulceration occurs, apply the following — 

I£ Aristol grs. x 

Balsam Peru gtts. x 

Castor Oil 5 i 

M Apply once daily on a linen cloth. 

Flax Seed poultice is fine for ulcerated burns. So also is Tar Plaster. 

If the Kidneys become affected, as they do in severe burns and 
scalds, drop doses of Camphor should be given, or minute doses of 
Cantharis. 

Open all blisters early and if sloughing occurs, dress the wound 
with "Tar Plaster." 

Campho-Phenique is valuable for burns of every degree especially 
if the skin is not broken. If the skin is broken dilute the 
Campho-Phenique with Olive Oil or Lanolin, 1 part to 5. 



CANCER. 

There is no known cure for Cancer. 

Protoneuclin affords the best encouragement of any known rem- 
edy and application. Dust it on the open sore every day twice, and 
administer at the same time, five grains three times daily. It keeps 
the sore clean and pure, and no doubt, if applied early, will afford 
considerable encouragement. 



42 CALCULI— CARBUNCLE 

Calcarea Carb. (Carbonate of Lime), in minute doses three or four 
times daily, is said to have cured Cancers and check their 
growth if persisted in. 

Resorcin, 5 parts and Vaseline 20 parts, mixed and applied, is 
thought to have cured Cancer of the face. 

Thuja Tincture, by the mouth and applied, is recommended highly. 
(See Lupus.) 

Surgery has no doubt saved many lives that otherwise would 
have been sacrificed to Cancer, and Malignant Growths. Do not 
sacrifice your common sense at the shrine of Cancer Quacks. Cancer 
is a constitutional trouble, involving groups and chains of the 
glandular system, and it cannot be done by pastes or applications of 
any kind. The surgeon is the proper remedy and cure, if any exists. 

CALCULI. 

See "Gravel — Kidney — Liver." 

CARBUNCLE. 

Inject into a Carbuncle at its point or points with a hypodermic 
syringe, deeply introduced, one drop of pure Carbolic Acid. Repeat 
this at every point of opening of the Carbuncle. It will turn wrong- 
side-out in a few minutes, and relieve the trouble entirely. This 
also is the proper treatment for large Boils. It is safe and only 
painful for a short time. Follow this with "Tar Plaster" dressing. 

Tinct. Arnica, by the mouth one drop every hour, is one of the 
nearest specific medicines for Carbuncles. 

Take a large tea-cup and burn inside of it a paper that has been 
saturated with Alcohol, and Turpentine, equal parts, and as it 
burns apply the cup over the Carbuncle. Thus "Cupping" occurs, 
and the pus will be drawn from the sore. This is good treatment 



CATALEPSY— CATARRH 43 

and saves weeks of suffering. Dress the sore, after cupping it, with 
the juice of Marigold and Glycerine, equal parts; this is inestimable 
as a dressing for all of these troubles. 

Silicea, in minute doses, every hour for 24 hours, is a grand remedy 
and opens Boils without the knife. 

Hepar Sulphur (Sulphuret of Lime), in minute doses, is also a true 
medicine for Carbuncles and Boils. 

Applying Camphor and Lime water, in equal parts, will, if used 
early, abort Boils and Carbuncles. 

Coal Tar, five parts, and Soapy Water, 20 parts, mixed and applied, 
will not only stop the pain of Carbuncles, but abort them. It 
acts like magic. 

Caustic Potash, the size of a pea bound upon a Carbuncle or Boil, 
will open it without the knife. 

See "Boils." 

CATALEPSY. 

Copper Acetate, in very minute doses, will not only cure, but pre- 
vent Catalepsy as it will all spasms and convulsions. 

Melilotus, five drops of the tincture three times daily, will not only 
control convulsions and fits of all sorts, but it will cure the 
patient suffering from them; even Epilepsy will yield to this 
drug. 

CATARRH. 

Real genuine Catarrh of the nose cannot be cured. It can be 
relieved and the patient made more comfortable by proper treat- 
ment. Nasal Catarrh is curable when confined to the mucus 
membrane of the nose and throat.

For hard Chancre, 'either remove it with a knife, or let it alone, 
and keep the parts clean. Dust Calomel on the sore once daily. 

For soft Chancre apply a 10% solution of Cocaine, and after 15 
minutes burn deeply all over the sore with pure Nitric Acid, applied 
with a glass-rod. Apply a cold, moist dressing for 24 hours, then 
dust with Calomel powder every day, and keep the sore perfectly 
clean with Peroxide of Hydrogen solution in water. 

CHANGE OF LIFE (Menapause). 

No remedy covers so many cases as Lachesis, in minute doses, 
especially where the clothing feels too heavy for the abdomen, and 
the patient is worse after sleep. 

Sulphur, in minute doses, is to be thought well of in these cases 
where the feet burn and must be put out of bed to get them 
comfortable, and there are hot flushes, or waves, with restless 
sleep. 



CHAPPED LIPS OR HANDS— CHILBLAINS 47

every five hours, are among the first remedies. 

For cough at the Change of Life give Syrup Iodide of Iron, in 
teaspoonful doses, after meals. This is the specific. 

CHAPPED LIPS OR HANDS. 

Resinol is the one and only application that will ever be needed. 

If the hands are in water much, an application of benzoin should 
be made. Several coats with a camel-hair brush forms an artificial 
covering and protects from moisture. 

An application of pure Vinegar is a very excellent cure. Use it 
frequently as an application.

expose the feet to the sudden heat of a stove. 



48 CHILL— CHOKING— CHOLERA 

Paint a Chilblain with Oil of Eucalyptus, and lo! it disappears 
as if by magic. 

To cure Chilblains, or the tendency, give 1-12 grain of Agaricin 
every four or five hours. It is a grand specific. This is the extract 
of the common Toad-stool. 



CHILL 

For any sudden chill from cold take one drop of Camphor Tinc- 
ture, on sugar, every 10 minutes. Two or three doses will warm 
you and prevent "taking cold," no matter what the exposure. 

CHOKING. 

If from some food in the throat, elevate the shoulders and arms 
and press the head forward. The food will pass downward. 

Do not pound upon the back of a choking person, but turn him 
wrong-side-up and run the finger into the throat as far as possible. 

If choking from worms, give Salt Water drinks. 

If from fish-bones, give bread crumbs to eat. 

CHOLERA. 

Arsenous Acid, in minute doses, is the nearest specific for Cholera 
and Yellow Fever. Repeat the dose frequently. 

Baptisia Tincture, in 5-drop doses, is a grand remedy. 

Camphor will cure many cases when they have reached the collapse. 
Give it in drop doses every 10 minutes. 

Copper Acetate, in minute doses every hour, will cure when all 

else fails. 
Yeratrum Alb., in drop doses of the tincture, is very choice. 



CHOLERA INFANTUM AND CHOLERA MORBUS 49 

It is said that Chloroform, in tablespoonful dose (one dose) has 
cured in 30 minutes. It is safer and better in 20 to 30 drops on 
sugar every hour or two. 

Sulphuric Acid, 30 drops in a glass of water, is said to not only cure, 
but prevent infection. This is reliable.

50 CHOREA— COLDS, Etc. 

CHOREA (St. Vitus' Dance). 

Arsenic, in 3-drop doses of Fowler's Solution to begin with, and 
gradually increasing the dose until it is 10 or 12 drops, two or 
three times daily. Then decrease gradually. So repeat up and

Stramonium, in minute doses, is the true specific for Chorea. 

Hyoscin, 1-50 grain every day hypodermically, will control the 
trembling and the disease. 

Strychnia, increasing doses according to age, will cure Chorea. 

Specific. Correct the disorganized genitals, as they are frequently 
the cause of Chorea. 

CICATRIX (Scars). 

To remove a scar, shave off the scar and paint every day with 
the following:

Keloid formations may be removed by this treatment. 

C0CCY0DINIA (Neuralgia of the End of the Spine). 

Inject 10 drops of Chloroform, hypodermically, at the seat of 
pain, and cure at once. Repeat when necessary. 

COLDS— COUGHS— CORYZA. 

To prevent "taking cold" after exposure, take 1 drop of Tinct.

54 COLLAPSE— COMPLEXION 

COLLAPSE. 

Ammonia, in any of its forms, is safe and reliable, given in drop or 
grain doses. 

Xitro- Glycerine, 1-50 grain, hypodermically, is the first to be thought 
of in collapse due to any cause, especially from Chloroform and 
heart troubles. 

Opium, in 40-drop doses, in collapse of sunstroke, is specific. 

Musk, by inhalation. 

Strychnia Sulph., drop doses of a 1% solution, or 1-50 grain hypo- 
dermically, in collapse from any cause, especially from use of] 
an aneasthetic or from heart failure.

Lanolin, rubbed into wrinkles and "crow's feet," will remove them 
in one month. It is harmless and reliable. 



CONSTIPATION. 

In most persons Constipation is due to one of two causes, 
namely: either an irritable rectum, or anus, as is often the case in 
infants and small children; or the absence of sufficient fluids in the 
body to flush the alimentary tract. 

Women are the subjects of Constipation. It is usually their 
chief-stock-in-trade. Why is this true of women? Because women 
do not drink cold water enough to supply the needs of the bowel. 
Their beverage is tea, coffee, or cocoa, or chocolate, etc. Women 
are neglectful of nature's calls to duty. They must wash the dishes, 
or sweep the floor, or do some other household service, while nature 
is pleading for relief. This is a sin for which they will sooner or later 
repent in sackcloth and ashes. 

Of course, it must be said of women that the lower segment of 
the bowel is more patulous than in men, and therefore more room 
for an accumulation of fecal material, without notice or discomfort. 
This encourages the habit of neglect; but if women would only drink 
plenty of cold water, Constipation would be rarely found. How can 
the trouble be cured? This is a question of prime importance. 
Answer : 



56 CONSTIPATION 

TREATMENT. 

If due to irritations in the rectum or anus, these must be cor- 
rected by healing applications. One of the best is the following — 

IJ Solid Ex. Aesculus Hippo. 5 ss 

Lanolin 5 iv 

M sig. Use a teaspoonful through a small glass syringe 
morning and evening. If Piles or Fissures exist, this 
will cure them. In addition to the above, there should 
be taken three times daily 1 drop of the tincture of 
Horse Chestnut (Aesculus Hippo.) in a little water. 

Collinsonia (Stone Root) tincture, in 2-drop doses, is a specific for 
the Constipation of women, especially if Piles exist. You can 
stake your life on this. This remedy covers more of the ills 
of women than any other one known. 

Ichthyol, in 6-grain doses in capsules three times daily, will cure 
chronic Constipation in one month. 

Nux Vomica, in very minute doses every morning before breakfast, 
will cause the bowel to move in half an hour. 

Tinct. Bryonia, in drop doses three times daily, for dry, hard, burnt 
stools. 

Opium, in minute doses, where the stool is in balls and round lumps. 

Peristaltic Pills, put up by Warner of Philadelphia, is one of the 
grandest remedies on the market, and may be relied upon to do 
all claimed for them. 

Figs, boiled in milk and drink four ounces every night, is a good 
remedy. 

Lemonade, without sugar, every morning before breakfast, aids in 
the cure of Constipation. 



CONSTIPATION 57 

Sulphur, in grain doses at bedtime, affords one of the best remedies 
for Constipation. 

Equal parts of ground Senna, Jalap, and Cloves mixed. Take a 
teaspoonful at liberty. There will be no griping. If you mix this in 
syrup simple you have the much-talked-of "Fig Syrup." House- 
hold remedy. 

Cold Water, two glassfuls every night and morning, will regulate 
the bowel better and more certainly than all the Laxatives or 
Cathartics known. 

Cathartics —

Sig. One at bedtime. 

^ Tinct. Aloes et Myrrh ,

Syrup Simple L 

M sig. Teaspoonful before meals. This is dangerous, as 

it will produce Piles if continued; as will any Cathartic 

in which Aloes form the chief ingredient. 

Epsom Salts, two heaping teaspoonfuls before breakfast in cold 
water, is very satisfactory, but must not be indulged in too often. 
They are too cooling to the system. 

Blue Flag, taken in 5-grain doses, is a Cathartic. 



58 CONSUMPTION 

Castor Oil, one ounce, is a Cathartic whose after-effect is Constipa- 
tion. If taken in continued 10 or 15-drop doses it will regulate 
the bowel of constipated persons, especially children. Mix it 
with Glycerine, equal parts, and the taste and smell will not be 
noticed. 

Bermudah Onion, one every night; and give it to your children, and 
bid good-bye to all Constipation and sleeplessness. 

Sugar of Milk, 3 teaspoonfuls in hot milk or water, will move the 
bowel in an hour, if taken before breakfast. 

Brewer's Yeast, in cupful doses, is a sure physic. 

Ignatia, in minute doses, for constipation of infants. 

Yerbascum and Alumina, in minute doses, are also good. 



CONSUMPTION. 

Consumption cannot, so far as known, be cured. Climate, with 
good, wholesome food and drink, afford the best treatment. 

The Murphy treatment of hypodermic injections of Nitrogen Gas 
into the plural cavity, over the seat of the disease, and allowed to 
remain for several weeks before its removal, offers some hope for the 
Consumptive. By this the "rest" cure is achieved, and the lung is 
collapsed by the pressure of the gas, and the germs are destroyed 
by the pressure. This is a painless and non-dangerous treatment. 
Great encouragement is offered by this method. 

Baptisia, or Sulphur, or Glycerine, or Morrhul, are offered for 
trial. 

Consumptives are usually sexually starved, or sexually over-fed 
persons. It is difficult to prescribe for such persons. You cannot 
recommend its indulgence by the unmarried, and you cannot control 
the married. 



CONTAGION— CORNS t 

CONTAGION (Infection). 

Gum of Myrrh, a small fragment carried in the mouth, will prever 
contagion of every sort. 

Gun-powder, burned in the house and near the clothing, will prever 
contagion. Keep the clothing saturated with the gas. 

Vinegar, in tablespoonful doses three or four times daily, will protec 
from Small-pox infection. 

Onions, sliced up and placed in saucers about the house, is sai< 
to protect against Contagion. 

Sulphur Fumes are likewise good, but not absolute. 

Tinct. Belladonna, in 2-drop doses, will prevent Scarlet Fever infec 
tion. 

Sulphuric Acid, diluted, and in 8 or 10-drop doses, taken in plenty c 
water, will prevent Yellow Fever and Cholera. 

Arsenic, 1-30 grain, will protect against Cholera. 

Arsenite of Copper, in 1-100 grain doses, will do the same. 

CORNS. 

Apply common table salt night and morning, rubbing the Cor: 
with the thumb after having dipped it into water and then into th 
salt. This is absolutely a cure of any hard Corn in one month. 

Vinegar on lint or cotton, and applied fresh every night and morning 
cures soft Corns. This is absolute. 

Never soak Corns in hot water, especially if they are inflamed an 
tender. Soak them in cold water in which Tinct. of Veratrum Virid 
has been used. This reduces inflammation. A good way is to appl 
the Veratrum Viride on lint after the Corn has been soaked in th 
cold water. Do this every night and morning, and all tendernes 
will disappear in twenty-four hours. 



«0 CRAMPS 

Never cut Corns. Scrape them with the finger-nail, being careful 
not to make them bleed. It is very dangerous and has cost many 
a life. 

Treat a Corn as if it were something of value to you. and it will 
engage your attention and be cured. 

Wash the feet every day once and you will never have corns. 
Putman's Corn Paste — 

5 Solid Ex. Cannabis Indica grs. x 

Salicylic Acid grs. x 

Collodion 5 i 

M and apply once daily. This is no good and is not the 
intelligent method of treatment. 

Lemon, bound on the Corn every night, will completely cure it in 
one week. This is good for hard and soft Corns, also for Bun- 
ions and Chilblains. 



CRAMPS. 

Metallic Copper, in minute doses, is a specific for Cramps. 

Colocynth, 1 drop of the tincture on sugar every 15 or 20 minutes, 
is specific for Colic. 

Valeriana, in minute doses, is good for all Cramps. 

Turpentine, in 10 to 20-drop doses in hot water, relieves at once.' 

To stop Cramps in the calf of the leg or the sole of the foot, take 
a thick cord and wrap it once around the limb or foot, over the seat 
of trouble, and draw the ends tightly for one minute, and all Cramp 
is gone. This is positively a quick and reliable relief. 

See "Spasms and Colic." 



CROUP— CYSTITIS— DANDRUFF 

CROUP. 

Tinct. Aconite, in minute doses, alternated with Spongia Tosta, 
minute doses every five minutes, will stop Croup in 30 minuti 
The next day give minute doses of Phosphorus to prevent 
return of the trouble. 15 drops of the tincture in half glass 
water and give a teaspoonful every two hours. 

Turpentine, in 3-drop doses every few minutes, will cure in 30 mi 
utes. Put some of it in hot water and let the patient info 
the fumes. 

Bromine soon cures Croup. 

For membranous Croup, spray the throat with a solution of Pa 
creatin. It dissolves the membrane. Or, use the following in t 
same way: 

Trypsin, or Lime Water, or Liquor Potassi, or 10% solution 
Lactic Acid in Glycerine, or Phosproric Acid (Dil.), and adminisl 
Bichromate of Potash in minute doses every 10 minutes. These d 
ferent drugs should be used separately. 

Hepar Sulphur, in minute doses, and if after 30 minutes the case 
not relieved and the child is in danger of suffocating, perfoi 
Tracheotomy at once. 

CYSTITIS.

manifest in the patient, namely — 

Arsenic for dry, scaly condition of the scalp. 

Hepar Sulphur for a pustular eruption of the scalp. 

Graphites for a moist eruption, having a honey-like fluid. This is 
specific for all eruptions and skin diseases where this honey-like 
fluid exists. It is frequently found on the ears or behind them, 
or on the scalp. See. "Scalp and Hair." 

DEAFNESS. 

Mullein Oil is mentioned as being a great remedy, dropped into 
the ear. 

If wax exists in the ear, remove it by putting into the ear a satu- 
rated solution of Bi-Carbonate of Soda. This will dissolve the wax. 
Follow this with six drops of Castor Oil, and repeat twice daily until 
the ear is clean. 



DELIRIUM TREMENS 63 

Glycerine is a good dressing for the ear in deafness. 

Consult a Specialist. 
See "Ear." 

DELIRIUM TREMENS. 

One or two drops of pure Carbolic Acid, taken in plenty of 
water, is a very choice home remedy. 

Give Strychnia, 1% solution, two drops in water every hour. 

Hydrobromate of Hyoscin, 1-50 grain hypodermically, is the remedy. 

Agaricin, 1-12 grain every two hours, is par excellence. 

Hot Water, drink large quantities, is all that is needed, in addition 
two teaspoonful doses of hot clear coffee every hour. 

Extract of Oats is a good remedy. 

Vinegar, in tablespoonful doses every half hour, clears up the case 
in a few hours. 

Ammonia, in two drop doses in water, is sufficient for these cases. 

Beef-tea with plenty of Cayenne pepper, is one of the great specifics. 

Most cases recover without any treatment whatever. Good 
nursing is usually all that is needed.

64 DIABETES— DIARRHOEA 

DIABETES. 

Pure Kreosotum, four to six drops daily, give one or two drops as 
a dose in water. 

Skim-Milk, large quantities every day and no other food or drink, 
is said to cure this disease. 

Lactic Acid, five drops of a 10% solution in Alcohol, three times 
daily, is recommended. 

Rhus Aromatica Fluid Extract, in 30 drop doses, is recommended 
highly. 

Uranium Nitrate, in minute doses, four times daily, has cured several 
cases for me, which had been long standing. With this let the 
patient eat anything he wants, but avoid stimulants of every 
kind, and drink skim-milk. 

DIARRHOEA. 

Iris Versicolor (Blue Flag), in drop doses of the tincture every 
hour, will cure more cases of Diarrhoea and Cholera Morbus 
and Cholera Infantum, than any known medicine. I have seen 
it do miracles. • 

Ipecac, in minute doses, where the stool is green and Nausea pre- 
dominates, is absolutely to be relied upon as curative. 

Arsenite of Copper, 1-100 grain three or four times daily, where the 
stool is yellow and violent cramps occur, also for Diarrhoea 
of Consumptives. 

Arsenic, in minute doses every hour or two, where stool is yellow 
and painless and has a foul odor. 

Iodine, in minute doses, where the -stool is copious and papescent, 
and the patient is exhausted and weak. 



DIARRHOEA 65

Sig. Take one every three or four hours. This is good 

treatment. 

Boil a stick of Cinnamon Bark in two cupfuls of milk, and give 
a teaspoonful every hour, is one of the finest remedies for children 
and may be relied upon. Good also for Dysentery. 

Vegetable Charcoal where the stool is very offensive. 

Podophyllum, in minute doses, for white stool and the patient is 
gagging, retching, and rolling the head. 

Sulphuric Acid, in five drop doses in water, may be relied upon 
implicitly for Diarrhoea, either for children or adults. 

Magnesia Sulph., in five grain doses every three hours, is an un- 
equaled remedy for acute Diarrhoea. 

Thuja, in minute doses every half-hour, for 6 hours only, for early 
morning Diarrhoea. Stool yellow, watery, windy, and gurgling 
like water out of a bung-hole. 



66 DIPHTHERIA 

For chronic Diarrhoea give six grains of the Salicylate of Bis- 
muth three times daily. Excellent. 

DIPHTHERIA. 

The most recent and possibly the most successful treatment is 
by the use of Antitoxin. 

METHOD OF ADMINISTRATION. 

Diphtheria Antitoxic Serum is administered hypodermically. In 
so doing the same care as to cleanliness must be observed here as 
elsewhere in the use of the hypodermic needle. We recommend 
the following convenient procedure: Place the syringe in luke- 
warm water and bring to the boiling-point. To insure perfect asepsis 
boil for five minutes. Cleanse the site of injection, using warm 
water and soap, after which apply a 5 per cent, solution of Carbolic 
Acid. The latter produces a degree of local anaesthesia which over- 
comes the pain of puncture by the needle. Any part of the body 
where the skin is loose and the subcutaneous connective tissue 
abundant — such as the region of the hip, the abdomen, the inner 
aspect of the thigh, and the interscapular region — may be selected. 
Preference is to be given to the latter site, since the patient cannot 
witness the injection, and is, therefore, less likely to entertain fear. 
This is a precaution well taken in every instance where the hypo- 
dermics are given to children, but especially so in Diphtheria, because 
the heart is always more or less affected by the toxins of the disease, 
and care should be used to prevent all undue excitement. In this 
region the scapulae protect the site of injection against pressure 
of clothing or bed covering. 

Inject the serum slowly and well down into the tissues. It is well 
to consume several minutes in injecting the required quantity. Do 
not massage the parts. By observing these precautions the most 
rapid absorption of the serum is secured. 



DIPHTHERIA 67 

Anti-toxin should be administered as early as possible, as twenty- 
four hours lost may mean a life sacrificed. 

EFFECT OF ANTI-TOXIN. 

1st. Arrest of the disease. 

2d. General improvement — slower pulse — fever abates. 

3d. Softening of the glands. 

4th. Retraction of edges of the membranes. 

DOSE. 

From 1,000 to 2,000 units. Repeat in from 8 to 10 hours, if 
necessary. 

PREVENTIVE. 

From 200 to 500 units. 

Repeat every 10 or 15 days. 

Sulphate of Soda is the most reliable remedy. Give two grains every 
hour or two in half a glass of water. 

Carbolic Acid, in drop doses in water, is one of the most reliable 
remedies. 

Bichromate of Potash, in minute doses, where the phlegm and 
secretions are ropy and tenacious. 

Protoneuclein, in three grain doses every four hours, and blow the 
powder into the throat and nose every hour, is good.' Or make 
a solution in water and use by a spray. This may be relied upon. 

Muriate Tinct. Iron is the best caustic to the ulcers in the throat. 
However, it is not good practice to treat the case with a caustic 
application of any kind. 



68 DISINFECTANTS 

Pancreatin Solution, used by an automizer, will dissolve the mem- 
brane. 

Trypsin used in the same way will do the same thing. These are 
fine in Membranous Croup as well as Diphtheria. 

Borax, three grain doses for children and 10 grain doses for adults 
every three or four hours, is curative. Use no local applica- 
tion with this.

CAUTION. 

In all cases of Diphtheria, do not allow the patient to rise up 
inasmuch as that the heart is always badly involved in this disease, 
and many patients die from this cause when they are getting well. 

DISINFECTANTS. 

Sulphate of Copper in hot solutions are best to disinfect sinks and 
closets and water-pipes. 

Chloride of Lime is also very excellent except for its odor. 

Soap-Suds is excellent if used hot. 

Chlorine Water is good but not so easy to make. (See Sundries.) 

Coffee is one of the most powerful disinfectants, either burned or a 
solution made of it and applied. 

Strong Salt Solution is one of the cheapest and best disinfectants. 

Sulphur, burned is a good disinfectant, but will discolor metals. 



DIURESIS— DROPSY 69 

DIURESIS (Excessive Flow of Urine). 

Nitrate of Uranium, in minute doses, is the one and only remedy 
needed for Polyuria. 

DROPSY. 

Apocynum Cannabinum, in three to five drop doses of the tincture 
every two or three hours, stands in the front rank for Dropsy 
of all kinds. 

Arsenic, in minute doses, for Dropsy due to heart disease and where 
there exists a white, pale, waxy complexion, and very difficult 
breathing. 

Apis Melifica, in minute doses, where the patient cannot breathe 
unless he sits up. Also for all Dropsies of the serous tissues. 

Queen of the Meadow Tincture is a remedy to be given for Dropsy,

DROWNING. 



Never cease the struggle to revive and save a drowned person. 
They have been restored after hours of labor. Stick to the task for 
two or three hours. 

DIRECTIONS. 

Remove all clothing. Head downward for two or three minutes, 
then stretch the person full length on a board or the ground. Rub 
them all over with common salt. Roll them, as they lay on the 
back from side to side. If possible pack them naked in Salt. Pursue 
this method for hours. Success has been known after a person has 
been in the water for an hour or two. It is often successful to 
place the victim upon a ''teeter" and begin the motion head up, 
then the feet up and the head down, so rock them until revived. The 
motion should not exceed the normal respirations, which are from 
16 to 20 per minute. 

DROWSINESS. 

Nux Vomica, in minute doses, for drowsiness hours before bed-time. 
Aletris if due to womb trouble. 
Belladonna if due to Brain-disease. 
Phosphorus if due to Brain-fag. 



DRUNKENNESS 71 

Baptisia if it accompanies Typhoid Fever. 

Gelsemium if from fatigue. This is the great remedy for that "Tired 
Feeling." Five drop doses of the tincture every 5 hours. 

Nux Muschata, in minute doses, for drowsiness, faintness, etc. 



DRUNKENNESS. 

Tinct. Aconite, two drop doses every hour for drunken stupor. 
Hot Coffee, by the mouth and rectum, for a "dead drunk." 
Carbolic Acid, two drops in plenty of water, soon restores. 

Vinegar, wine-glassful every hour or two, is the great remedy of 
soldiers. Four drops of Ammonia should be added to the 
Vinegar. 

Ammonia Chloride, ^ teaspoonful in a glass of water, is excellent. 

Hot Water and plenty of it is the safest and the best of remedies. 

To distinguish between a "drunk" and an Opium poisoning, 
press your thumb ends firmly into the supra-orbital notch, which 
is under the eye-brow near the root of the nose. If drunk, they will 
yell in one minute. If Opium, they are insensible. 

If stupor from Prussic Acid, the breath will smell like peach-pits. 

Cannabis Indica Tincture, five to eight drops in water three or four 
times daily, is the one remedy for the nervousness of drunkards. 

Never give Chloral nor Morphine to drunkards. 

A cure for drunkards, is the following — 

First — Abstain from Liquor.

where there is much straining during and after stool. 

Aloes, in minute doses, where eating or drinking aggravates the 
bowels and Piles exist. 

Tinct. Cantharis, five drops in a glass of water. Give a teaspoonful 
every hour, where the stool is bloody and full of shreds, like 
the lining of the bowels. 



DYSPEPSIA 73 

Croton Oil for the same, given in very minute doses. 

Leptandrin, in minute doses, is the remedy for chronic forms. 

Tinct. of Cinnamon, in three to five drop doses, is also good for 
chronic cases. 

The best is this —

DYSPEPSIA. 

Dyspepsia is the cry of the stomach for rest. The "rest" treat- 
ment is, therefore, the best. "A hundred mastications to every 
mouthful," was Gladstone's cure for Dyspepsia. This is important 
as applied to all starchy foods, such as bread. In respect to meat 
foods, it is not so essential as it does not require the saliva for diges- 
tion. However, it is well to masticate or chew all foods thoroughly. 

The best preparation to aid in the digestion of food, is the following — 

IJ Tinct. Nux Vomica 3 i

74 DYSPEPSIA 

Dilute Sulphuric Acid, five drops in water an hour before. meals 
prepares the stomach for work. 

Sanguinaria, in minute doses before meals, is one of the best remedies 
for indigestion. 

Fl. Ex. Hydrastis, four drop doses before and after meals, is one 
of the foremost remedies, and has few equals for Dyspepsia. 

Ingluvin, five or ten grains after meals, is unequaled. This is pul- 
verized chicken gizzard and very useful in nausea after eating. 

Abies Nigra (Black Spruce), in minute doses, for a feeling as if a 
lump like an egg were in the stomach, and a constant distressing 
constriction at the pit of the stomach. This remedy is invalu- 
able for total loss of appetite in the morning, but with craving 
for food at noon and night. 

Lycopodium, in minute doses, is one of the very best where there 
is much rumbling of gas or wind in the stomach or bowel, with 
loss of appetite after a mouthful or two of food has been taken. 
Try this remedy for old chronic cases, and you will smile all 
over.

Dyspeptics should never take beef-tea clear. It should always 
be mixed with baked flour and Schlitz Malt Tonic. This tonic would 
have saved many a baby's life if used properly. 

A small pinch of Salt in water taken an hour before every meal, 
will cure these cases when all else fails. 



EAR 75 

The yolk of egg boiled an hour, is a good diet for delicate 
stomachs, and prepared thus, may be eaten at liberty. 

Mercurius Iod., in minute doses, for Ovarian Dyspepsia. 

Argentum Nitricum, in minute doses, for Dyspepsia at the Change 
of Life. Both these remedies are specific. 

Scutellaria Lat., is a specific for intestinal indigestion, especially of 
the duodenum. 

EAR. 

Earache will be instantly cured by dropping into the ear five 
or six drops of the Tinct. Plantago Major, as warm as can be borne, 
and administer by the mouth a teaspoonful of the same. The effect 
is instant. 

If suppuration of the ear occurs, and pus has formed in the 
inner ear, and the drum bulges, it should be punctured at onc.e and 
the parts syringed out with hot water and Boracic Acid every 4 
or 5 hours. After 2 days the ear should be dressed by blowing into 
it a mixture of equal parts of Iodocrol and Boracic Acid once daily. 
At first some pain will be experienced, but this will subside in 24 
or 48 hours and recovery will be rapid. 

For these cases of pus formation, Silicea, in minute doses, should 
be given every hour or two for 24 hours, then no medicine whatever 
for 30 days. The discharge will be increased, but soon will diminish 
and finally subside altogether. This treatment for all acute or 
chronic cases, is the only one needed. 

Mullein Oil, dropped into the ear, is said to be specific for earache 
and deafness arising from paralysis of the auditory nerve. I 
cannot vouch for the value of this remedy. 

Lobelia Tincture is well recommended for earache, and will do good 
service where used hot in the ear. 



76 EAR 

Onion Juice, dropped warm into the ear, cures earache in five min- 
utes. This is a quick and good old-fashioned relief for ordinary 
cases. 

Laudanum and Chloroform, in equal parts and put into the ear 
warm, will instantly relieve, but must not be repeated often. 

Black Pepper, wrapped in cotton and dipped into Sweet Oil and 
put into the ear, will afford relief at once. 

Fill the bowl of a new clay pipe with cotton and drop two or 
three drops of Chloroform on it, then cover with a linen handker- 
chief and put the stem of the pipe into the ear, and blow through 
the bowl, and thus the Chloroform fumes will relieve the pain at once. 

Cocaine, one drop of a 10% solution in the ear, is a quick method 
of relief. Do not repeat too often.

Pulsatilla, in three drop doses of the tincture, is a grand remedy 
for all ear troubles, also for repeating stys. Give it twice daily. 

Tinct. Gelsemium, in five drop doses once daily, will cure ringing 
in the ears. Dilute it with water and put a few drops into the ear. 

Quinine, in minute doses, cures roaring in the ears. 

Graphites, in very minute doses, cures honey-like discharges from, 
or behind, the ear and on the scalp. Make a salve of the same 
and apply once daily. 

Foreign bodies in the ear may be removed with a loop of very 
fine steel or silver wire. 

Maggots in the ear will come out at once by using the fumes 
of Chloroform, 



ECZEMA 11 

Agaricus, in minute doses, cures red swollen ears as it does the 
fingers and hands that look as though they had been frozen. 

Wax is quickly removed from the ear by the use of Hydrogen 
Peroxide. It dissolves the wax at once. 

ECZEMA. 

Rhus Toxicodendron will cure more cases and varieties of skin dis- 
ease than any other one drug. 

It applies successfully to all forms of Eczema and kindred skin 
affections. It must be given in small continued doses for several 
months. 

The most successful treatment for Eczema and one that has 
done wonders as a curative method is the following — 

Apply twice daily the ordinary "Black Wash" (Calomel and Lime 
water). After it has thoroughly dried then apply the following oint-

In old and aggravated forms of Eczema groups and crops of 
furuncles and small, sore and incomplete boils are frequently met 
with. In all such cases one of the following remedies should be 
given : 

Arnica Tincture drop doses before meals for all tendency to boils 
and crops of furuncles, especially when they are very tender 
and sore to the touch. 

Hepar Sulphuris, in minute doses, twice daily if the boils present 
pus points and tendency to suppuration. 

Sulphuric Acid Dilute, 5 drops i« plenty- of water before meals if 
the boils are large and frequent repetitions occur. 

In addition to the above treatment Epsom Salts 2 teaspoonfuls in 
cold water before breakfast 3 times each week must be given. 

If at any time after the eruptions have disappeared there remains 
a violent and persistent itching give 2 drops of a 1% solution of 
Strychnine an hour after each meal. 

The above treatment will cure even- and any case of Eczema. 

The following suggestion may be serviceable : 

Attend carefully to the diet, avoiding all greases and fatty food 
and give plenty- of old-fashioned buttermilk to drink.

ECZEMA 79 

"Black Wash" (Calomel and Lime Water) is a very good application 
or wash before applying Resinol or Ichthyol. Let it dry first. 

Graphites, in minute doses, for Eczema of the ears where a honey-like 
fluid escapes. Also of the scalp. Apply a paste made of the 
same. This is absolutely a specific for this form of Eczema. 

Arsenic, in minute doses three or four times daily, is a good skin 
medicine for burning Eczema, having a scaly, branlike eruption. 
In Psoriasis it is specific. 

Arsenauro, 10 to 15 drop doses in plenty of water, (children 5 to 
8 drops,) after each meal. Two or three ounces of it will work 
wonders where everything else has failed. It is specific in all 
forms of Eczema, and may be relied upon.

a sexual sedate. 

Gelsemiin, -J grain, and Lupulin, 3 grains, mixed, on going to 
bed, cures every case of night emissions. 

EPILEPSY. 

Epilepsy is a sudden loss of consciousness with convulsive move- 
ments of the body, and invariably frothing at the mouth, and a chew- 
ing, blowing motion of the mouth. You may tell when an Epileptic 
fit is about to occur by the rapid rise of the pulse. This is true 
whether acute or chronic. These fits may be due to some bowel, 
stomach, or genital irritation. Therefore, they will be cured by 
removing the cause. They may be due also to old injuries of the 
bone of the foreleg, the tibia especially. 

If due to stomach disease, cure it by proper remedies found in 
this book. So also if due to bowel disease. If from seat or other 
worms, destroy them. 

If due to a long prepuce in a boy, circumcise him. If in a girl, 
remove the clitoris. These are frequent causes in young life. 

All Epileptics should cat little and often. 

If from injuries to the skull or scalp, remove the depressing bone 
or scar. 

Atropine, a 30% trituration in sugar of milk, and give one or two 
grains every 10 or 12 hours, will cure most cases that are due 
to injuries of the brain. 

Xux Vomica, 1-20 grain twice daily, will cure many cases.

ERYSIPELAS 



Melilotus Tincture, given in drop doses every five minutes during 
an attack, will relieve in a few moments. Continue in six or 
seven-drop doses before and after meals. This will prevent all 
fits of this kind. Absolutely reliable. 

If a patient suffering from Epilepsy will take 1-50 grain of the 
Nitrate of Silver, after morning and evening meals, the fit will 
never occur. 

Passiflora Incarnata Tincture, a teaspoonful three times daily, will 
prevent and cure Epilepsy. Double the dose at bedtime. 

Fluid Extract of Horse Nettle, in ordinary doses, is proven effica- 
cious for Epilepsy. 



ERYSIPELAS.

ordinary cases where the surface is very red and inflamed and 
the eyes are affected. Apply also a 2% solution twice daily. 

Rhus Tox., in minute doses, cures the vesicular forms. It is specific. 

Apis Melifica, where the pain is of a stinging nature, and the erup- 
tions are papular. In frequent minute doses. 

Arsenic, in minute doses every two hours, cures the phlegmonous 
cases. Very reliable. 

Baptisia, in a lotion of 1 part to 10 parts of water, is the only external 
dressing needed. Apply on cotton cloths and renew every 
half hour. This application for all forms of the disease is the 
proper one. 

Cantharis, five drops of the tincture in half a glass of water, given in 
teaspoonful doses every hour, is a specific remedy. 



EYES 83 

Erysipelas is a constitutional disease, and may become chronic. 
Hence, Iron, in the most agreeable form, should accompany all 
medications. 

Give Metallic Iron, in minute doses, twice daily. 

Never apply poultices to Erysipelatous eruptions. They aggra- 
vate the trouble. 

EYES. 

Atropia, one grain in an ounce of water and one or two drops in the 
eye, will quickly reduce ordinary acute inflammation. 

Cocaine, 5% solution dropped in the eye every five minutes, until 
three doses are given, will relieve all pain in the eye, and should 
be employed for the comfort of the patient, but not too con- 
tinuously. 

Boracic Acid, 10% solution in warm water, is a very excellent eye 
lotion. 

Yellow Oxide of Mercury is one of the foremost remedies for granu- 
lation of the lids, prepared thus — 

3J Hydrarg. ox. Flavus grs. ij

will be no pain from its use. Repeat three times daily. 
If the granulations are of long standing and large, take 
a piece of Copperas and smoothen the surface or the 
edge, and then rub lightly over the granulations once 
daily. This is a wonderful absorbent and stimulant. 

Cabbage or Potato Poultices are very excellent applications for gran- 
ulated eye-lids. In fact, to all inflammations of the eye or its lids. 

Calomel, finely pulverized and dusted in the eye with a camel-hair 
brush every day, is unequaled for scars and cicatrices in the 
eye, due to old inflammations. 



84 ENEMAS 

Iodoform, finely pulverized, is one of the soothing stimulants in 
scars and granulations. 

Euphrasia is the grand specific for eye diseases. Dose of the tinc- 
ture one to five drops in water four or five times daily. Make 
a lotion of it with water, 10 drops to an ounce, and put into 
the eye frequently. Euphrasia cures twitching eye-lids or 
squinting. Specific. 

Extract of Witch Hazel, diluted with water one part to ten, and put 
into the eye, is a very soothing dressing and cure for inflamma- 
tions, acute or chronic. 

Nitrate of Silver, in a 2% solution in water, and one drop in the eye, 
is an excellent stimulant in all purulent and chronic forms.

M sig. Two drops in the eye four times daily. 
Apis Melifica, in minute doses, for dropsy of the eye-lids. 

It is said that the juice of Cineraria Maritima will cure Cataracts. 
One or two drops in the eye night and morning, or oftener if 
desired. When first dropped into the eye a little burning occurs, 
which subsides in a moment. This drug never produces harm, but 
is perfectly safe. It acts directly, and only upon the opaque matter 
of the lens or its capsule, causing its dissolution and subsequent 
absorption. In all cases of Cataract of the eye the Succus Cineraria 
Maritima should be employed before surgical methods are resorted 
to. It has cured many cases. 

ENEMAS. 

In severe Constipation, as also after operations affecting the 
rectum, Castor Oil in three or four ounces, injected in the rectum 
at bedtime, will perfectly dissolve the feces, and produce an easy 
movement of the bowel. 



ENEMAS 85 

Glycerine, either pure or half in water, injected into the rectum, will 
cause the bowel to move in two minutes, but must not be 
employed after any operation affecting any portion of the bowel. 
It produces too much straining and smarting. 

Hot Salt Water is a very excellent Enema for cleansing the bowel 
and destroying all seat worms. 

Camphor Spirits, 12 drops to the pint of water, is an excellent 
Enema, and not only heals, but soothes the bowel. 

Pure Coal Oil may be used in the bowel, high above the flexures, 
in large quantities, for the removal of obstructions and impac- 
tions. 

Bovinine is one of the best preparations, when used with Hydrogen 
Peroxide, for Constipation and Impaction of the bowel. Use 
them as follows : Introduce a rectal cathater above the sigmoid 
flexure; then inject any quantity of warm Bovinine; follow this 
with an ounce of Hydrogen Peroxide mixed one-half with 
water. This not only dissolves the Impaction at once, but the 
liberation of the gas will smoothen out the bowel without any 
pain. 

Hot Air is a good Enema for torsion or twisting of the bowel. 

Fluid Hydrastis (non-alcoholic), one ounce and water ten ounces, 
is a very excellent Enema for ulceration. 

Fl. Ex. of Rhatany, two tablespoonfuls to the pint of tepid water, 
is the proper Enema for Proctitis. 

Fl Ex. Pinus Canadensis, one tablesponful to the pint of water; 
is unequaled for inflamed or ulcerated rectum. 



86 NUTRITIVE ENEMAS— FAINTING 

NUTRITIVE ENEMAS. 

IJ Cod-liver Oil 5 ounces 

Yolk of one egg 

Lime water 1 ounces 

M This is sufficient for four or five Enemas, to be given 

during the day. 

5 Cod-liver Oil 5 ounces 

Yolk of one egg 

Chloride of Sodium 40 grains 

Water 10 ounces 

M This is sufficient for four or five Enemas during the 

day. 

Enemas of almost any kind of food may be employed in the 
rectum when they cannot be administered by the mouth, and with 
nearly as good results, in respect to nourishment, as if they were 
taken into the stomach. Eggs and warm milk, bouillon, bovinine, 
cod-liver oil, soups, gruels made from peas, barley, oats and wheat, 
rice, and starches of all kinds. In fact, rectal alimentation may 
include almost any ordinary article of diet, but must always be 
administered warm. 

FAINTING. 

.Lay the patient upon the back in a perfectly horizontal position, 
and loosen all clothing and give plenty of air. 

If conscious, give by mouth two drops of ordinary Ammonia 
in water, or give Whiskey in half-ounce doses in water. It absorbs 
ten times more quickly by giving it in water. 

Smell Ammonia, or Vinegar, or Amyl, or Musk. 

Give Nitro-Glycerine, 1-50 grain, or one drop of the 1-100% solution. 

Give Strychnine, 1-50 grain, or two drops of a 1% solution. These 
last two may be given hypodermically. 



FEET— FELON 87 

Digitalis, six drops of the tincture, if from heart trouble, or either 
of the two foregoing remedies. 

FEET. 

For cold feet give lime. Preferably Calcarea Carb., or Silicea, 
both in minute doses. The patient must wear cotton stockings 
next the feet and woolen over them. 

For hot feet give Sulphur, in minute doses, one powder daily; is 
specific. 

For offensive sweating, Silicea, given in minute doses, is specific. 
Chromic Acid, 1 part in 9 parts of water, and apply nights after a 
foot-bath. Specific. 

Apply Chloral Water morning and evening, or the following — 

3 Chloral Hydrate 5 i 

Water 5 xvi 

M sig. Bathe feet in tepid water, not hot, and then 
apply the above. After the feet are dry apply freely 
Bismuth Sub. Nit. This is absolutely a cure. 

The following is good — 

B Per Chloride Iron 5 iij 

Glycerine 5 ss 

Oil Bergamont 3 ij 

M and apply with a hair brush. This is unequaled for 

sore, tender feet. 

FELON. 

Apply freely and frequently Collodion. This will abort, if applied 
early. 

Carbolic Acid (pure). Dip the finger into it for one minute. Sure 
relief. 

Dip the parts affected into lye; it will abort Felons. 



88 FEVERS 

The best treatment for a Felon that is 48 hours old is to put 
the lance clear into the bone. First apply pure Carbolic Acid to 
make the lancing painless. 

FEVERS. 

Fever and rise of temperature are nature's method of eliminating 
disease. Almost every known disease is accompanied by fever. It 
does not become necessary to pay great attention to a rising tem- 
perature, unless it becomes dangerously high or continues above 
normal for several days. The normal temperature of the body is 
98 6-10°. Dangerously high, or exhausting temperature, or "fever," 
as it is commonly termed, is from 102° to 107°. Rarely does the 
patient survive so high a fever condition as the latter. 

In diseased conditions it is not good to reduce the temperature 
rapidly to the normal. Fever is only one of the guiding symptoms 
upon which treatment is to be based. There are a few drugs which 
reduce fever rapidly. 

TREATMENT. 

Tinct. Aconite, in drop doses every hour or two, for a fever with 
dry, hot skin and a bounding full pulse. 

Yeratrum Yiride Tincture, given in drop doses every hour or two, 
is a twin sister of Aconite. It acts more quickly than Aconite, 
and is not so liable to produce the severe sweating. 

Tinct. Belladonna, in two drop doses every one or two hours, where 
there is severe, throbbing headache, and red or tearful eyes, 
which cannot bear light or bright objects; even water is 
unpleasant to the sight. 

Bryonia Alb., in one drop dose of the tincture every hour, is an 
antiseptic, and is applied for moderate fever with headache made 
worse by motion. Aggravation by motion is its chief guiding 
symptom. 



FEVERS 89 

Baptisia Tincture, in one to three drop doses, is a specific for all 
fevers, especially the severe type, such as Typhoid and its 
delirium. Nothing else is needed. It applies to all toxic fevers. 

Phosphate of Iron, in minute doses, is the master remedy for the 
acute forms of fever, or any congestion and inflammation. This 
is a remedy of unusual value, and can be relied upon in every 
case. Neither the doctor nor the home should be without this 
remedy. It covers more ills of life than any other drug. It 
must be given in minute doses for all cases, every hour or two. 

Gelsemium Tincture, in two or five drop doses, is a fever medicine. 
There is no thirst in the fever of this drug. It applies especially 
to Cerebro-Spinal Fevers. This drug covers and cures such 
cases as does Cicuta Virosa (given the same way), except that 
there is more delirium in the fever of Cicuta than Gelsemium, 
and the patient whirls the arms and legs about, and the sight 
of one eye is affected. It applies to Meningitis, and will cure 
most of such cases. 

Hellebore Nig. also is of the same type, and applies to the fevers 
of brain disease. In this drug we have suppression of urine, 
and rolling of the head and evidence of dropsical brain trouble. 
In Gelsemium the patient wishes to lie perfectly still and quiet. 

Camphor, in minute doses, applies to fevers of the brain wnere the 
body of the patient is cold. Indeed, there may be chills. This 
is a great remedy for Cholera and Yellow Fever. 

In Gastric Fever the remedy is Ipecac, in minute doses, fre- 
quently repeated. Also China Ars., in minute doses, is one of the 
leading remedies for Gastric Fever (Stomach Fever). 

Hectic Fever — Baptisia Tincture, in three drop doses every three 
hours, will destroy the poisons of Hectic. It is specific. This 
is the great remedy for Blood Poisoning from decayed vege- 
table or animal matter. Given in alternation with Arsenic, in 
minute doses, it redeems and saves any case. 



90 FEVERS 

Intermittent Fever — See "Ague." 

Puerperal Fever — Veratrum Viride, as above indicated, is the first 
remedy. With this give Baptisia and Arsenic, in frequent doses, 
in rotation. 

Vaginal and Uterine treatment must accompany all cases of this' 
kind. Antiseptic lotions, of which the following is the best — 

5 Baptisia tincture § ij 

Hot water i 

M Intra-Uterine douche every three hours, day and night, 
for several days. 

Another, although not so good as the foregoing, is — 

5 Hydrarg. Bi-Chlor. grs. 7£ 

Hot water ij 

M Intra-Uterine lotion every three or four hours. 

I depend upon Baptisia and China Arsenate, in minute doses 
every hour alternately, to cure every case in connection with the 
lotion of Baptisia. 

Spotted Fever (Typhus) — Lachesis, in minute doses every hour, will 
cure. I usually give the following with it — 

1} Alcohol 5 ss 

Aqua o i ss 

M sig. One or two tablespoonfuls every 15 or 20 minutes 

for 12 hours continuously. This is elegant. 

Typhoid Fever — Treat every case as follows — 

1$ Tinct. Veratrum Vir. 3 iss 

Aqua Dest. add 5 ivss 

M sig. Teaspoonful every two hours throughout the 
case, or until the conditions are changed, requiring its 
discontinuance. At the same time give the following— 



FISTULA— FRECKLES 91 

^ Tinct. Baptisia 5 iss 

Aqua Dest. add § iv 

M sig. A teaspoonful, throughout the case, every three 

hours, or until the patient puts his clothes on. 

Also — Give a daily Alcohol rub. Give plenty of cold water 
which has first been boiled. Bury all secretions. You may risk 
your all upon success in any case if called to its treatment. 

Glycerine will stop the thirst in fever patients by putting a drop 
or two over the tongue. 

Diagnosis of Typhoid Fever — The temperature of the first seven 
days will be absolutely decisive. If it falls lower than any previous 
day's record, the case is not Typhoid. See "Scarlet Fever." 

FISTULA. 

A "complete" Fistula may be cured by passing an elastic through 
it, and fastening the ends with a perforated shot, tightening the 
elastic every second day. 

An "incomplete" Fistula may be made complete by the trocar 
or probe or knife, and then treated as above ; or, better still, use the 
following — 

1$ Lactopeptin 3 i 

Hot water 3 ss 

M sig. Inject twice daily, or pack the Fistula with the 

dry Lactopeptin every day. Wash the powder out at 

the end of 24 hours, and repack. 

Many of these cases are Tuberculous. If so, an appropriate rem- 
edy must be administered. 

Packing a Fistula with Oakum is highly recommended. 

FRECKLES. 

These are accompaniments of fair-skinned persons only, and are 
due to thickened sweat at the openings of the sweat glands. It dries 
on the face like Bran.

FOOD. 

To Make Junket, or Curds and Whey. 

A delicious delicacy for invalids, convalescents and dyspeptics: 
Junket. — Take one-half pint of fresh milk, heated lukewarm — 
not warmer than can be agreeably borne by the mouth (about 
115° F.); add one teaspoonful of Fairchild's Essence of Pepsine, and 
stir just enough to mix. Pour into custard cups, let it stand until 
firmly curdled; may be served plain or with sugar and grated nutmeg. 
An egg, beaten to a froth and sweetened with two teaspoonfuls 
of sugar, may previously be added to the half-pint of milk, forming' 
a highly nutritious and smooth jelly. The essence will curdle milk 
with eggs as readily as plain milk. 



FOOD 93 

Whey. — Curd warm milk with the Essence of Pepsme, as above 
directed; then beat up with a fork until the curd is finely divided; 
now strain, and the Whey is ready for use. 

Whey is a highly nutritious fluid food, peculiarly useful in many 
ailments, and always valuable as a means of variety in diet for the 
sick. It is frequently resorted to as a food for infants to tide over 
periods of indigestion, summer complaints, etc. 

For Neurosis of the stomach — 

5 Fresh milk qt. 1 

Water qt. i 

Sodii Bi-Carb. grs. 15 

M and heat to 125° or 140° F., and add Pancreatic Liquor, 
four drachms to each quart of the preparation. Keep 
it warm for two or three hours, and when it becomes 
i bitter remove and let it cool. 

Sig. Use it while fresh, and at liberty. 

BABY'S FOOD. 

Sugar of Milk one ounce, in one-half pint of water, and boil 15 
minutes; then add one-half pint of fresh milk and boil again; give 
from the bottle moderately warm. Obstinate cases of Dysentery 
have been cured by this diet. 

For the sake of a change, if the bowels are loose, crack a tea- 
spoonful of barley in a coffee mill, boil it 15 minutes in one-half 
pint of water with a little salt, skim it, and for a young child add 
half as much cow's milk as there is barley water, sweeten and give 
warm from the bottle. If the bowels are bound, use oatmeal instead 
of barley. 

Cream, skimmed off the milk two hours after milking in the 
morning, dilute one-half or three-quarters with boiling water, and 
sweetened slightly with loaf sugar, often agrees with a child, and 
stays on the stomach when milk will not. 



94 FOOD 

To a quart of milk just boiling add a heaping teaspoonful of 
corn starch, and as much white sugar; continue the boiling until 
it thickens (no longer), and feed warm. This will make the baby fat. 

Pure, unfermented grape juice (preserved without boiling, and 
without any chemical or other substance to prevent fermentation), 
is the food par excellence for sick children, as well as for adult 
invalids. A child four years old took H pints a day during Scarlet 
Fever. 

Squeeze the juice from raw, lean meat with a lemon squeezer, 
salt it slightly and dilute it a little with warm water, put it into the 
nursing bottle, and give four times daily as much as seems tolerated 
by the stomach. This cures Summer Complaint. 

Permitting the baby to suck a raw oyster, or the raw, soft part 
of dried beef, held in the nurse's fingers, often proves curative in 
cases of Bowel Complaint. 

When the baby is loosing flesh, vomits food, and has sour stools, 
a grain or two of Sugar of Milk, placed dry upon the tongue every 
three or four hours, often corrects the trouble. 

When children are brought up by hand, the substitution of Milk 
Sugar for loaf sugar will frequently obviate sour vomiting and acid 
diarrhoea. 

Rice, carefully cleaned and nicely browned in an oven, a tea- 
spoonful in a pint of water, allowed to stand and simmer on the 
stove for an hour or more, then the watery portion drained off and 
cooled to blood heat, and slightly sweetened and colored, if you 
choose, with a teaspoonful of milk, will agree with the most delicate 
stomach, and is almost as nourishing as milk. 

Take two tablespoonfuls of unbolted wheat flour, and wet it 
with cold water to the thickness of cream; then add this to two 
quarts of boiling water, and boil thirty minutes; strain and serve. 
This agrees with children reared upon the bottle oftentimes when 
cow's milk does not. It cures Cholera Infantum. 

If child's stools are sour, put a tablespoonful of Lime Water 
with the milk in its nursing bottle. If the stools are bloody, boil 
a piece of mutton suet in the milk, and season with a little salt. 



FROST BITE— GALL STONE 95 

Diabetic persons must abstain from foods containing starch and 
sugar; partake only of meats, green vegetables and skim milk. 

Persons afflicted with Gravel, Gout, or Bright's Disease, must 
not partake of meats, eggs, or new milk. Their food must be 
mainly farinaceous — bread, cakes, green vegetables and skim-milk. 

In Consumption or other wasting diseases, give Liquid Pep- 
tonoids. 

FROST BITE. 

Place the patient in a cool room and wrap the frozen part in 
snow, thus drawing out the frost slowly but surely. Then paint the 
parts with Oil of Peppermint twice daily. 

If sloughing occurs, apply "Tar Plaster" once or twice daily, and 
administer Agaricus, in minute doses, frequently repeated. 



GALL STONE. 

Chloroform, four drops on sugar every three or four hours, will 
dissolve Gall-stone. 

Chionia, in teaspoonful doses every four or five hours, is specific. 

Dioscorea, in two drop doses every 10 or 15 minutes, soon relieves 
Gall-stone colic. 

China Tincture, in two drop doses three times daily, will prevent 
their formation. This is absolutely specific. 

If the pain is too severe to endure, either give a violent emetic 
such as Ipecac, tincture, teaspoonful doses, or Apomorphia, J grain 
on the tongue ; or else Morphia Sulph, i to ^ grain, hypodermically, 
according to age and severity of the pain. 

Drink a cupful of Olive Oil every day.

M ft. pill 50. 

Sig. One before meals. This is magic treatment. 

Fl. Ex. Collinsonia, 10 to 15 drops every three to five hours, is a 
master of the disease. 

Argentum Nitricum, in minute doses, for painful and gaseous con- 
ditions of the stomach. 

Chloroform, six to ten drops on sugar, relieves instantly, but does 

not cure. 

■• 
Tinct. Plantago Major, one teaspoonful relieves the pain "while 

you wait/' 

Tinct. Gelsemium, five drops in hot water repeated every four hours, 
is immediate in its action and cures. Mix equal parts of this 
drug with Kalmia Tinct. and give 10 drops in hot water, and you 
have a specific. 

GLANDS. 

Belladonna, in drop doses of the tincture every hour, for acute 
swelling of the glands, especially those of the throat where there 
is severe, throbbing pain, and a slimy, red, smooth appearance. 
Make also a salve, as follows, of the Solid Ex. of Belladonna, 
and apply to all external glandular swellings — 



GLANDS 97 

I£ Solid Ex. Belladonna grs. xv 

Lanolin 5 ij 

M and apply to gland. 

Common Clay, made into a soft paste with water, is just as good 
as Belladonna for external use only. 

The one drug that will do more and quicker work in all glandular 
swellings, acute or chronic (especially chronic), than all others com- 
bined, is Phytolacca Decandra tincture. For acute swelling give 
two drops every hour or two, and in chronic swelling of the glands 
give one drop three or four times daily. Make a paste and apply 
as follows: 

.I£ Solid Ex. Phytolacca grs. xxx 

Lanolin § ij 

M and apply twice daily. For swelling of the breasts this 

has no equal. Phytolacca is the great gland remedy. 

Iodine should never be applied pure to swollen glands, acute or 
chronic, as it invariably increases the trouble. If used (and if 
is a good remedy), it must be given in minute doses by the 
mouth, as follows — 

^ Tinct. Iodine gtts. xx 

Water or Syr. Sarsaparilla % iv 

^ sig. Teaspoonful three times daily. 

Mercurius Iodide must also be used carefully in its administration 
for glandular swelling.

98 GOITRE 

Iodide of Potash, for chronic swelling of the glands, may be used 
in three to five grains after each meal. The best treatment 
where Mercury and Potash are to be given for glandular dis- 
eases, ordinary or Syphilitic, is the following — 

I> Hydrarg. Biniodi grs. ij 

Potass. Iodide 3 iss 

Syr. Simple and Aqua aa 5 iij

For enlarged glands the following is an excellent application — 

IJ Tinct. Iodine o ss 

Olive Oil 5 ss 

Tinct. Camphor .5 i 

M and apply. With this give Iodide of Lime in minute 

doses even* three or four hours. 



GOITRE (Thick Neck). 

Thyroidene (Dessicated Thyroid Gland) is one of the specifics for 
Goitre or Bronchocele or Derbyshire Xeck, as it is commonly 
called. It must not be given to patients who have heart disease 
of any kind, or are sexually weak, as it will cause impotency. 
Otherwise, give it in five grain doses one to three times daily. 
It works wonders. 

Ordinary cases of Goitre may be cured by giving pulverized egg- 
shell, half a teaspoonful on bread three times daily. At the same 
time give the same quantity of burnt Sponge (Place a sponge on 
a stove shovel and burn it until it is reduced to ashes). This is one 
of the most effectual, as well as safest cures for ordinary Goitre.

teaspoonfuls of the solution, retaining for one minute. 

This is absolutely a preventive of Clap, no matter how 

wayward the victim may be. The syringe must be 

cone-pointed and not sharp-pointed. 

Peroxide of Hydrogen, diluted J with water and injected, will accom- 
plish the same result, but must not be retained. It will not 
stain the clothing. Wash the parts externally with this solution.

and drive the disease into glands. 

Wash the parts externally several times daily in cold water, and 
give free vent to the discharges. If dressings are used, they must be 
moist, cold, and changed every two or three hours. 

Here is one of the most valuable prescriptions for the average 
case of acute Gonorrhea —

For chronic Urethral discharge, 10 drop doses of Donovan's 
Solution of the Iodide of Arsenic, will be found a valuable remedy. 
Give it after meals. 

Injections of Sterilized Blood Serum or Bovinine three times 
daily will cure any case of Clap in one week. All prescriptions herein 
given apply to male and female alike. Blood Serum must be care- 
fully filtered and then add 0.05 per cent, of trikresol, which preserves 
it perfectly from putrefaction. 

GOUT. 

(See Rheumatism.) 

Thialion, in ordinary doses, is one of the nearest specifics for Gout. 

Colchicum, in ordinary doses, is excellent. 

Hot Water, a tumblerful every 20 minutes for three hours, after 
breakfast every day, not only cures, but prevents Gout. 

Ichthyol, in six grain capsules after meals, and apply the same to 
the joints, cures like magic. Avoid all stimulants and meats. 



102 GRAVEL— GYNAECOLOGY 

One of the most effectual treatments for Gout, is the following —

cause, especially disappointed love. Also for bad effects of 
Tobacco. 

GUMS. 

Bleeding that occurs after the extraction of teeth may be in- 
stantly stopped by applying Chloroform, or a solution of Iron, or 
equal parts of a saturated solution of Tannic Acid and Antipyrine, 
or Plaster Paris forced into the openings in the gums and retained 
after it has hardened. 

See "Hemorrhage" and "Teeth." 

GYNAECOLOGY. 

This comes from two Greek terms. Gynae — a woman, and Logus 
— a word or writing. It is the duty of every physician to make a 
thorough and careful inspection of the entire genitalia of every 



DYSMENORRHEA 103 

patient, showing either local or reflex pathological conditions. The 
best persuasive power of the physician must be employed with his 
patient to being about this end. While it is imperative upon him 
at all times to recognize the modesty and sensitiveness of his patient, 
at the same time he must insist upon thorough observation and 
palpation of the genitalium, if he is to be helpful to her. It will be 
impracticable in a work of this kind to outline and discuss at great 
length the various diseases affecting the genital pharaphinalia of 
woman, but there are a few thoughts from experience worthy of 
consideration. 

The size and measurements of the body of woman do not always 
correspond with the size and measurements of her genital organs. 
The tall, slim, well-formed woman frequently possesses the narrowest 
and smallest genital organ, and bears her children with greater diffi- 
culty than the woman of small body and vice versa. So that, taking 
into consideration these things, a physician will be guided some- 
what by them. The minor labia of the vagina should normally be 
thin and retiring in their relation to other parts of the vagina. If 
the reverse be found to exist, the thought suggested will be: Are 
these adhesions or enlargements due to irritations. So also, if the 
hood of the clitoris be adhered and elongated, the same question will 
arise. In both these abnormal conditions serious reflex phenomena 
will arise to the destruction of health. And so w T ith all the external 
genitals, as well as the womb and ovaries. The diseases most com- 
monly found are: 

Irregularities in the Menstrual function, such as pain of various 
kinds — delays — too frequent menstruation — too profuse — abnormal 
colors, and qualities of the fluid — menstrual headache — uterine colic 
— acute vaginitis, and vaginismus. 

DYSMENORRHEA. 

(Painful Monthly.) 

Dysmenorrhea may be of three forms. First, obstructive. 
Second, neuralgic. Third, membranous. The pain arises from 



104 DYSMENORRHEA 

irregular contractions. The contraction of the cervical canal causes 
clots to form and these being discharged, bring on periodical pain. 
The treatment of the different forms of Dysmenorrhea are: For the 
Obstructive form surgical methods are necessary. If the obstruction 
is due to an attresia of the cervix, the best treatment to offer the 
patient, is the amputation of the cervix, with thorough dilatation of 
the remaining portion of the neck. If it is due to a contraction of 
the cervical neck, the treatment is dilatation of the internal os. 
This latter procedure is indispensable in such cases. 

The neuralgic type, one of the following remedies will cure the 
case: 

Macrotin will cure, if the pain passes from hip-point to hip-point 
with downward pressure. 

Tinct. Belladonna and Tinct. Gelsemium, equal parts, in five drop 
doses every half-hour in hot water, is curative if the pain begins 
before the flow does. 

Caulophyllum, in small doses frequently repeated, will cure if the 
pain begins after the flow has started. 

Rhus Tox., 1-50 grain twice daily, or possibly the tincture of Dul- 
camara, in drop doses every half-hour, will serve such cases 
better, if the pain is present only during stormy damp weather. 

Crocus Sat, in minute doses, if the pain is colicy and the flow black, 
changing to light, and vica versa. 

Kreosotum, in minute doses, if the flow smarts. 
For ordinary Dysmenorrhea, give the following —

Membranous Dysmenorrhea may be cured by the administration of 
Borax, 5 grains 3 times daily. 

Atresia — contraction of the canal, and flexions — produce the fol- 
lowing reflex conditions: Headache — dizziness — opisthotonous — 
and hysteria. 

In membranous Dysmenorrhea, there is always an interchange 
or metastasis between the monthly period and an eruption on the 
skin. 

In ordinary Dysmenorrhea, dilatation is a very important means 
of relief. The forceps or dilator introduced twenty-four or forty-eight 
hours before the expected time. 

VAGINITIS. 

Vaginitis may be either specific or granular. The simple form 
of Vaginitis may be either acute or chronic. If acute, it may be 
primary or secondary succeeding some other trouble. 

CAUSES. 

1st. Excoriating fluid, such as Leucorrhea. 

2nd. Exposure to cold. 

3rd. Injury from pessaries, etc. 

4th. Disordered system, as from Phthisis. 

5th. Abscesses. 

6th. Retention of putrifying fluid, as from the placenta in 
abortion. 



106 VAGINITIS 

7th. Chemical agents. 

8th. Rupture of the Rougae folds, in childbirth. 

9th. Cotton tampons and sponges. 

It runs its course in from twelve to eighteen days. 

SYMPTOMS. 

Sense of heat and burning in the vaginal walls, aching and beat- 
ing in the perineum, frequent urinating, purulent discharge and very 
offensive. 

PHYSICAL SIGNS. 

Swelling of the mucus membrane and dry like pleurisy, very red 
and later pus. 

In making examinations of this kind, be very careful of innocula- 
tion. The complications will be Urethritis and Cystitis. 

The specific form is, of course, infectious and contagious. 

SYMPTOMS. 

Heat, swelling and purulent discharges, with scalding when in 
the act of urinating. 

The granular form is the same as the above, except for the forma- 
tion of granulations throughout the vault. 

TREATMENT. 

In acute forms of Vaginitis, administer Aconite or Belladonna, 
in minute doses, frequently repeated. In connection with these, use 
douches of Pinus Canadensis, tablespoonful to one pint of water, 
night and morning. 



VAGINISMUS— FLEXIONS 107 



VAGINISMUS. 



Vaginismus is an inflammation of the tissue surrounding the 
ostium vagina, and with extreme sensitiveness of the parts; and is 
frequently due to an irritable hymen or irritable fragments of the 
same. The pain and tenderness are diagnostic — remove the cause 
and sustain the general health of the patient. 

Vaginismus being due to irritability of the hymen or fragments 
of the same, dilatation and such-like barbarous treatment, will not 
suffice to cure. 

Cure the case by removing the cause with a pair of curved scis- 
sors and make yourself famous. If contractions should succeed the 
removal, introduce into the vagina Sim's Glass Tube, and allow it 
to remain in place several hours at a time. 

FLEXIONS. 

Diseased conditions following Flexions are — 

1st. Congestion of the parts. 

2nd. Dysmenorrhea. 

3rd. Heamatocele. 

4th. Ovaritis and inflammation of the tubes. 

5th. Pelvic Peritonitis. 

6th. Neuralgia. 

7th. Cystitis. 

8th. Improverished system. 

9th. Relaxation of Abdominal walls. 

10th. Constipation. 

11th. Chronic headache. 

TREATMENT. 

Anti-versions and anti-flexions of the womb are the most difficult 
mal-positions to deal with, and are best treated by the gravitation 
method combined with a mechanical repositing of the organ. Place 



108 DISTURBED MENSTRUATION 

the patient upon the back, reposite the womb and elevate the hips. 
Keep this position for some weeks, or insert a stem pessary. 

Retro-versions and Retro-flexions may be corrected by a speedy 
surgical interference. // no adhesions exist, anaesthetize the patient 
and proceed as in a case of Vaginal Hysterectomy, by making an 
incision over the anterior surface of the cervix. Dissect the bladder 
wall from the anterior surface of the fundus of the womb, then pass 
a large full curved needle through the fundus of the womb, carrying 
with it a large silk ligature, then down and through the cervical lip. 
Xow with a repositor or a sound bring the womb up to its proper 
anterior relations, then tie the ligature near the cervical portion. 
This holds the organ in its proper relation, and elevates at the same 
time the bladder attachments as dissected up from the muscular por- 
tion of the uterus. Thus a space is made for new tissue, which will 
soon fill with granulation. Thus the anterior wall of the womb is 
increased in thickness and prevents its return to a retroverted or 
retroflexed position. The ligature is allowed to remain for two 
weeks, when it is removed. Xo sutures are to be employed in the 
case and but simple dressings are to be made in the vaginal vault. 
Where adhesions exist, this operation, as devised by myself, cannot 
be done. In cases where adhesions exist the abdominal operation 
is the only one. Alexander's operation is not practicable and should 
never be attempted in any of these cases. In mild forms of Retro- 
version, the womb may be caused to keep its place after a month's 
treatment by repositing and tampon supports. 



DISTURBED MENSTRUATION. 

There are seven crises of Disturbed Menstruation — 

1st. Crisis of Puberty. 

2nd. Menstruation and Ovulation. 

3rd. Pregnancy.

110 MENORRHAGIA AND METRORRHIA 

MENORRHAGIA AND METRORRHIA. 

The first means "I flow fiercely." The second means "I 'flow 
after, or again." The first is most common after the fortieth year, 
and is due to either Metritis or acute and sub-acute Ovaritis. It is 
the twin of Sub-involution. 

CAUSES. 

1st. Continual delicacy. 

2nd. Mal-nutrition. 

3rd. Anaemia. 

4th. Over-work or over-education. 

5th. Climatic changes. 

6th. Mental disturbance.

22nd. Suspicious diseases of the vagina and vulva. 

From the 11th to the 22nd inclusive, belong both Menorrhagia 
and Metrorrhagia. 



VICARIOUS MENSTURATION 111 

TREATMENT. 

Ustilago, in ordinary doses, is a remedy of prime importance. 

Aletris, one-half ounce in five ounces of Sherry Wine, and give a 
teaspoonful four times daily. This is well-nigh a specific for 
these troubles. 

Macrotin, in half grain doses, twice daily, acts like magic. 

Trillin, 1-10 grain doses four times daily, is the master remedy of 
secondary hemorrhages from the womb. 

Secale Cornutum will control flooding from a sub-involuted uterus. 
Nitric Acid and Ipecac, in minute doses, will control and cure all 
passive hemorrhages from the uterus. 

Oil of Erigeron, three drops every half-hour in a little Alcohol, will 
stop hemorrhages from the womb immediately. 

Tinct. Cannabis Indica, 20% solution in Alcohol and give five drops 
every half-hour, is a specific for flooding. 

Fluid Hydrastis is better than Ergot in these cases. 

CAUTION. 

Never give Iron in any form during a flow, but give Quinine, in 
grain doses four times daily, or China tincture, in five drop doses 
before meals. 

VICARIOUS MENSTRUATION. 

This means the flow from other organs than the uterus, such as 
the palms of the hands, the ears, the eyes, the nose, or the rectum. 
Or it may mean a white flow when the monthly should appear. If 
the former it will be cured by minute doses of Bryonia alb., three 
times daily, for several months. If the latter it will be cured by the 
administration of Nitrogenized Iron, in teaspoonful doses after meals. 



112 METRITIS 



METRITIS. 



This word means an inflammation of the womb. The word Endo- 
metritis means an inflammation of the lining membrane of the womb. 
They are due to mal-position of the organ, or taking cold, or to 
specific causes, or to injuries by the use of instruments, or to infec- 
tion. In married life they are due most frequently to sub-involution 
following childbirth. The mother who does not nurse her off-spring, 
is invariably afflicted with Sub-involution of the uterus and sub : 
sequent Endo-metritis. 

SYMPTOMS. 

Burning, pain, unnatural weight as if the organ would leave the 
body, and Leucorrhea. * 

REFLEX SYMPTOMS. 

Neuralgia of the face and teeth — headache — indigestion — palpi- 
tation of the heart — and difficult breathing. 

Later on in the case a profuse discharge occurs, containing col- 
numnar cells from the neck and cervix of the womb, and pavement 
epithelial cells from the body of the womb. Microscopical investiga- 
tion will thus show whether the secretion arises from the body of 
the womb or the cervix. The vaginal epithelium is always com- 
posed of squamous cells. In Metritis palpation reveals hardness, 
increased size of the organ, tenderness and displacement downward. 
Lacerations of the cervix-uteri are fruitful causes of Sub-involution 
and subsequent Metritis. If the morbid phenomena are accompanied 
with any degree of Laceration, nothing short of operative inter- 
ference will be curative. If the Metritis is due to the entire absence 
of lactation, or the sudden cessation of the nursing process, or the 
sudden closing of the lochical discharge, their re-establishment must 
be accomplished in the quickest manner possible. 

If from the cessation of milk secretion, Ustilago will rejuvenate 
the gland to action. 



LEUCORRHEA 113 

If from cessation of lochia, Bryonia alb., in minute doses fre- 
quently given, will correct the trouble. 

If the malady is due to specific causes, the anti-specific treatment 
must ensue by the administration of Naphthalin, in grain doses 
mixed in sugar of milk, and given four times daily. 
Tinct. Gelsemium, in five drop doses in hot water five or six times 
daily, will aid very much in the cure. 

Intra-uterine injections of sterilized blood serum, or sterilized 
Bovinine, through a recurrent cathater, is a method and cure which 
I have devised for these cases of specific Metritis, and yields the 
speediest results of any known method. These injections are given 
twice daily and hot. 

Vaginal injections of the Bromide of Potash, one drachm to the 
pint of water, in cases of so-called irritable uterus, diffuse pelvic pains, 
and hysterical Neurosis in various parts of the body, are said to be 
very valuable.

LEUCORRHEA. 

Leucorrhea may be either acute or chronic. Acute forms of Leu- 
corrhea may arise from mal-position of the uterus, Endo-metritis, 
from acute febril diseases, taking cold, poorly nourished system, or 
chemical irritation. It may arise from the body or the cervix of 
the womb, due to laceration, or from the vaginal vault. The dis- 
charge from the body of the womb is usually found very consistent : 



114 LEUCORRHEA 

In Lumps, chunks or plugs. Its color is glairry. Its odor offensive 
and purulent. The secretion from the cervix is usually milky and 
viscid. The reaction from both the discharges is alkaline. The 
former containing pavement epithelial cells, and the latter con- 
taining columnar epithelial cells. While the discharge from the 
vagina is curdy, cheesy, acid and corrosive, containing tessilated and 
squamous epithelial cells. Reaction Acid. If an Acid Leucorrhea 
exists, it may be Gonorrheal, in which case a microscope will reveal 
gonnococcus. The curative means will depend entirely upon the 
cause of the difficulty. Remove the cause and the discharge ceases. 
If from Laceration of the cervix, repair the injury without delay, as 
local applications will be of no permanent service whatever — a mis- 
take too often indulged in by physicians, to the great detriment, 
disappointment and financial loss of the patient. If the discharge 
arises from the cavity of the uterus, an intra-uterine application may 
be necessary, particularly so in the chronic forms and in which case 
granular masses will be found covering the endo-metrium. These 
latter must be removed bv the currette. 



CAUTION. 

Never make intra-uterine applications of Carbolic AcFd, unless 
pure, and never make intra-uterine applications of any liquid, unless 
through a recurrent cathater, or previous dilatation of the cervical 
neck of the womb. Intra-uterine applications of Tinct. of Iodine, or 
Pinus Canadensis, or corrosive Sublimate, hot, will be of great 
service in the treatment of the case. Also Chloride Tinct. of Iron in 
cases due to relaxation of the body of the womb, or the vaginal walls. 

TREATMENT. 

Iodide of Mercury, if the discharge is worse at night. 
Iodide of Iron, if due to general loss of vitality. 



LEUCORRHEA 115 

Iodide of Arsenic, if offensive and corrosive. Also Kreosotum. 

Iodine, if accompanied by a loss of flesh while the appetite remains 
good. 

Helonin, if the patient is of a hysterical type with depression of 
spirits. 

Belladonna, in the acute form and accompanied by sterility. 

Aletris Cordial may be made by mixing together, one drachm of 
the Tinct. of Aletris and four ounces of Sherry Wine, giving one 
teaspoonful three times daily. This applies particularly to Leu- 
corrhea due to mal-position of the womb, or to ladies broken 
down or worn out by womb trouble and loss of appetite. 

Sulphite of Calcium, \ grain three times daily. 

Sulphate of Iron, in ordinary doses and applied to the womb, is one 
of the best remedies for Leucorrhea due to a relaxed condition 
of the womb and vagina. 

VAGINAL LOTIONS. 

For Leucorrhea, Blennorrhea, relaxed conditions of the Mucus 
Membrane, Excoriations and Irritations.

Long experience and observation have led me to the conclusion 
that the majority of female complaints are due to acid conditions 
of the fluids of the body, especially of the mucus membrane, and 
that this acid state should be neutralized as the first step in all suc- 
cessful treatment. Therefore, anti-acids should be given for at least 
one week before local treatments are employed. 

ABDOMINAL TUMORS. 

When an abdominal tumor is discovered, the first question that 
presents itself, is: What is it? All abdominal tumors are either 
fibrous, fibro-cystic, or cystic. 

Fibroids may be found extra-uterine, inter-uterine (between the 
muscular layers of the womb), or intra-uterine. They grow very 
slowly and painlessly and are usually of small size. Their presence 
is always indicated where severe hemorrhages and excessive flowing 
from the womb occurs. This is diagnostic. They are hard and 
nodular like the formation of a potato. There may be several of 
these growths present at the same time, 



ABDOMINAL TUMORS 117 

TREATMENT. 

The remedy, is Secale Cornutum or Ustilago, in long continued 
doses covering many months. 

The Chloride of Ammonia, in 10 grain doses administered for a long 
time, in connection with the administration of Ergot, in half- 
teaspoonful doses, is said to have cured these cases where the 
tumor is of small size. 

Fl. Ex. Hydrastis, in eight drop doses three times daily, has cured 
a few of these cases in my practice where Ergot and Ammonia 
failed. 

If the tumor is of large size and the hemorrhages are dangerous, 
medicine should not be administered for their removal, as sloughing 
is liable to occur where Ergot is administered in large and continued 
doses. The removal of large Fibroid Growths, can be more safely 
accomplished and with better results with the knife, or by the 
surgeon. 

Fibro-Cystic tumors are to be dealt with after the same manner as 
the foregoing. 

Cystic Tumors. If the growth is below the umbilicus and in the 
median line, and is three or more years old, it is uterine, and 
painless, and may be a Fibroid. If so it will be accompanied by 
severe hemorrhages. If it is three years old, and ascends above 
the umbilicus and remains stationary, while the patient lies upon 
either side, it is Ovarian and, therefore, cystic, or Sarcomatous. 
If it is malignant, there will exist a dropsy of the belly and of 
the feet, and the urea passed during any 24 hours, will be about 
180 grains or three drachms, which is very much below the 
normal. This is adsolutely diagnostic of Malignant growths 
in the abdomen of women. There mav be found in a woman a 



118 ABDOMINAL TUMORS 

cyst of the broad-ligament, encysted peritoneal dropsy, and a 
cyst of the ovary, all of which contain an opelescent fluid. How 
shall we distinguish the difference? The first does not con- 
tain albumin. The second does contain albumin, and the 
third contains both albumin and par-albumin. Obtain a speci- 
men of the fluid by aspiration, and submit it to a test for albu- 
min, and if it is present, the cyst is either of the second or third 
variety. Now add an excess of Acetic Acid to the specimen, 
and if it clears up, it is en-cysted peritoneal dropsy. If it does 
not clear up, it is a cyst of the ovary. This is absolutely 
diagnostic. 

If the tumor is suspected as complicated with pregnancy, the 
pulse of the patient will remain the same in the three positions: 
standing — sitting — and lying. This is likewise diagnostic. With a 
change of color in the breast and the stationary character of the 
pulse, and the patient is not hemorrhoidal, and the uterus is of the 
egg-plant color, purple, and the lips of the womb are soft like the 
lips of the mouth, the tumor is pregnancy. 

The uterine murmur is not a reliable sign of pregnancy, as it 
may exist in Fibroid tumors and Aneurism of the aorta. 

TREATMENT. 

Ovarian cysts are said to have been cured by the administration 
of minute doses of Apis Melifica. This is not true of cysts that have 
attained any considerable size. 

Surgical pocedure is the proper one for the removal of these 
growths. 

Encysted peritoneal dropsy may be removed by several and 
repeated aspirations. 

So also may a cyst of the broad-ligament be cured by the same 
method. 



HEADACHE 119 

However, the surgical removal of a broad-ligament is the best 
procedure. 

HEADACHE. 

Headache may be either congestive and local, or reflex. Con- 
gestive is due to local causes, and reflex may be due to many causes, 
viz. : Rectal diseases — uterine — ovarian — tubal — cystic — vaginal — 
gastric — hepatic — splenic — in fact a reflex headache may have its 
origin from any of the abdominal or pelvic viscera. Headache being 
such a common malady, demands the attention of the physician more 
frequently than any other with which he meets. The duty of every 
physician, is to relieve this suffering in the quickest way possible, 
palliatively. The curative treatment depends entirely upon the cause. 
There is no sense in giving medicine to patients whose headache 
arises from surgical diseases of the pelvis, such as Piles, Fissures, 
Fistulas, Pappilae, Rectal Abscesses, Displacements of the Womb, 
or any mal-position of Genito-urinary Organs. These must be 
treated surgically as well as medicinally. 

REMEDIES (Palliative). 

Ammonol, ten grain doses, repeat in 30 minutes. This is the first 
great remedy. 

Potassium Iodide, two grains in a half glass of water, sip slowly, 
relieves in 15 minutes. 

Tinct. Melilotus, one drop, relieves in 5 minutes. 

REMEDIES (Curative). 
Congestive Headache. 

Belladonna, in minute doses three times daily, for a throbbing head- 
ache, red watery eyes which cannot bear light. 



120 HEADACHE 

Gelsemium, in minute doses, when the pain is like a band or hoop 
around the head. 

Bryonia, in minute doses, for morning headache worse on motion, 
and passing from the forehead backward over the head. 

Nitro-Glycerine, in minute doses, for throbbing, pulsating headache 
as if the head would burst. Involving the jaws and teeth, and 
made worse by the hot sun and by motion. 

Reflex Headache. 

Nervous — Tinct. of Sumbul, in five drop doses, in general nervous 
debility. 

Spigelia, in minute doses, where the heart is involved. 
Nux Vomica, in minute doses, where the head feels too big. 
Ignatia, in minute doses, as if a nail were driven into the head. 
Glonoine, in very minute doses, where the trifacial nerve is involved. 
Sepia, in minute doses, where uterine diseases exist. 

Sick Headache. 

Iris (Blue Flag), in minute doses, where it begins over the eyes 
accompanied with vomiting. 

Ipecac, in very minute doses, where nausea prevails. 

Tinct. Cocculus Indicus, three drops, three times daily, where it is 
due to the motion of a carriage, car, swing, or a boat. 

Peach Pits, dried, then cracked and eat three or four kernels daily. 
This is very choice for chronic forms. 



HEART 121 

Epiphegus Yirginiana, in minute doses, one dose every 20 minutes, 
is an absolute specific for sick headache. 

Zinc Yal., in minute doses, for fidgity feeling of the feet. 

Cimicifuga, in minute doses, where the uterus is involved. 

Cannabis Indica, in minute doses, with a sense of pressure on top 
of the head. 

Phosphate of Iron, in minute doses, and Chionanthus. in minute

cumulative effects. Give it in all heart diseases from two to five 
drop doses of the fluid extract every three or five hours. This 
remedy is excellent in all forms of Dropsy also.

HEARTBURN— HICCOUGH— HYSTERIA 123 

HEARTBURN (Water-Brash). 

Tinct. Cinnamon, in minute doses. 

Chalk, in three grain doses. 

Nux Vomica, in grain doses. 

Lactopeptin, ten to twenty grains. 

Salt, one-half teaspoonful in a little cold water, affords instant relief. 

Argentum Nitricum, in minute doses, cures heartburn. 

Arsenic, in minute doses, is unexcelled. 

HICCOUGH (Spasms of the Diaphragm). 

The best method of curing hiccough instantly is by compression 
of the phrenic nerve, which passes down the neck upon either side 
of the wind-pipe, and is easily compressed inside of the inner end 
of the clavicle, or collar-bone, holding the thumbs or fingers tightly 
at this point of the neck. This will soon stop hiccough. 

Paint the sides of the neck with the Tinct. Iodine. 
Quinine, ten grains, is a sure cure; one dose only. 

Snuff Pepper, or anything that will produce sneezing, will stop 
hiccough. 

HYSTERIA. 

Dashing cold water into the face of the patient will revive him 
at once. 

Asafoetida, five grains in hot milk given as an injection into the 
bowel two or three times daily, will cure Hysteria. 

Cimicifuga, in minute doses, at the change of life, or irregular 
monthly. 



124 HEAT RASH— HIVES 

Chloride of Gold, in minute doses, where melancholy exists, or a 
disposition to commit suicide. 

Zinc Val., mixed in ten times its weight with sugar of milk and 
ground together thoroughly, and give three grains three or 
four times daily, cures. 

Tinct. Ignatia, in drop doses, where the Hysteria is due to disap- 
pointed love, or grief of any kind; this will speedily cure. 

Give Hysterical patients Sumbul Cordial, made of Sumbul tinc- 
ture, two drachms, and the best Sherry Wine, four ounces. Give 
a teaspoonful three times daily. 

HEAT RASH. 

(Prickly Heat.) ' 

Tinct. of Nettle Weed (Urtica Urens), is the sheet anchor for Nettle 
Rash or Heat Rash. Give drop doses every two or three hours. 

Tinct. of Rumex Crisp (Yellow Dock), in 10 drop doses in water, 
is a specific. 

HIVES. 

Carb. Ammonia, in two grain doses, is a certain cure. 

Dulcamara, in minute doses, where hives are due to living or work- 
ing in damp places. 

Chloral Hydrate, in grain doses, cures without one failure. 

The sheet anchor for hives is: Six honey bees dropped alive into 
four ounces of Alcohol, and allowed to stand 24 hours; then filter 
the liquid through fine cheese cloth, and take five drops in water 
every two or three hours. This is an absolute cure for all forms 
of hives. 



HORNIA— HYDROPHOBIA 125 

Salicylate of Soda, in 15 grain doses, every two hours until four 
doses have been taken. This is likewise a certain relief. 

Quinine, in four grain doses after meals, is curative of hives. A 
salve made of Quinine and Vaseline will stop the itching of 
hives when applied. So will vinegar. 

Vinegar, in tablespoonful doses three or four times daily, will cure 
when all else fails. 

HERNIA (Rupture). 

Seize the patient by the feet and turn him wrong end up; hold 
in this position for a few minutes, and the bowel will go back to 
its place. 

Place the patient into a hot bath for 20 or 30 minutes, and the 
rupture may be reduced very readily. 

Apply Ether on cotton for 15 or 20 minutes, and success may 
result. 

Give the patient cupful after cupful of hot coffee, and bathe the 
parts with the same. Pretty soon the gas will escape and the bowel 
will go back into its place, after the hips have been elevated. If 
these fail, call in the surgeon, and proceed at once to operate. 

HYDROPHOBIA. 

Tinct. Belladonna, five drop doses every hour or two. Keep the 
patient under its influence for weeks. If spasms set in, give 
ten drop doses. Keep up a free perspiration by the use of the 
Tinct. of Jaborandi, hypodermically. 

Apply Slake Lime plentifully to the parts, and renew as often as 
the Lime becomes green; then bathe the parts with hot Vinegar, 
wipe perfectly dry, and cauterize with Nitric Acid. This last 
treatment is preventive of Hydrophobia. 



126 HOMESICKNESS— HAY FEVER 

The remedy that never fails, in the case of a mad-dog bite, is to 
procure a half dozen fowls, pluck the feathers from the fleshy part 
of one, and tear off the skin of the part and apply the raw surface 
to the bite; the fowl will die in ten seconds, the second in two min- 
utes, the third in six minutes, the fourth in ten minutes, the fifth 
will become giddy, but will not die. The poison is extracted — the 
patient is saved. 

HOMESICKNESS.

Phosphoric Acid, in minute doses every three or four hours. 

Hydro-Bromate of Hyoscin, in 1-50 grain doses three times daily,

give three grains every hour during the day. This is a posi- 
tive cure. 



HIGH IEMPERATURE— HAIR 127 

Insert dry absorbent cotton so as to fill pretty nearly the cavity 
of the nose; renew it twice daily, and in a few days the patient is 
well. If the cotton is first soaked in Vinegar and then dried, it 
acts better. 

Tinct. Sabadilla, in two drop doses four times daily, cures in a week. 

Xitrate of Sanguinaria, in minute doses, is a sheet anchor. 

Use Marchand's Hydrozone as a preventive. 
See "Asthma/-' 

HIGH TEMPERATURE. 

Ammonol, in ten grain doses, and repeat in an hour. 
Tinct. Aconite, in two drop doses every hour or two. 
Tinct. Veratrum Viride, in two drop doses every hour or two. 

Application of Alcohol to the surfaces. 

Cold Bath. 

In all cases of high temperature, from inflammatory causes, be 
careful not to reduce the temperature down to the normal, as tem- 
perature aids in the elimination of the disease; therefore, it should 
never be reduced to the normal point too quickly. 

HAIR. 

I will state as a theory that which I believe will be demonstrated 
to be tenable; namely, that premature baldness and loss of hair in 
men are due largely to overindulgence in sexuality. 

Heredity and diseased conditions of the scalp will account for 
loss of hair in some cases, but such as are due to heredity may be 
traced directlv to excess in sexualitv. The testimonv is, that those 



128 HAIR 

suffering from overworked sexual organs complain of a sore, tender 
feeling or excessive itching over the top of the head and at the 
hair-roots, and following overindulgence the hair is lost in large 
quantities. In woman the loss is not so great, and the reasons are 
apparent at first thought. The loss of vital fluids is not great in 
woman. In men of the above characteristics the loss of hair is. 
not confined to the scalp, but is noticeable over the whole body; 
so that the remedy is, "cease excess." The drug best adapted for 
these cases is Tincture of China off., taken in 5 drop doses three 
times daily. With these directions I have cured many cases. The 
following application should be made to the scalp — 

R Eau de Cologne g v*j 

Aqua Ammonia 5 ss 

Tinct. Cantharis gtts. x 

Oil Rose Mary gtts. xxiv 

M sig. Apply to the roots of the hair. This prevents its 
falling and inspires its growth. 

The sheet anchor for falling hair and diseases of the scalp is — 

I£ Corrosive Sublimate grs. v 

Eau de Cologne f> viij 

Tinct. Cantharis gtts. xv 

Castor Oil 3 i 

M sig. Apply once daily. 

A good old-fashioned remedy for falling hair is Onion juice, 
applied twice weekly. 

For baldness apply an emulsion made of Black Oats, by boiling 
and grinding the same, shells and all; strain through a cheese cloth 
and dilute the liquid until it is the consistency of cream. Apply 
this night and morning to the scalp. 

Administer by the mouth, in small doses, Hepar Sulphur, where 
a pustular or papular eruption exists. 



HEMORRHAGES 129 

Administer Silicea, Arsenic, or Graphites, in minute doses as the 
case may require, until the results are obtained. (See "Dandruff.") 

Grey hair may be restored to its original color by bathing it in 
Salt water daily, or in the sap of Grape Vines. 
To remove superfluous hair — 

IJ Barium Sulph. I >> 
Slacked Lime J 

Flour 5 ij 

^r Make a paste with water and apply, allowing it to 
remain 5 or 8 minutes; then remove with a dull knife. 
See "Dandruff" and "Scalp." 

HEMORRHAGES (Bleeding). 

IN GENERAL WOUNDS. 

If possible, in hemorrhages arising from a wound, apply a tight 
compress between the heart and wound, being careful to make the 
application of the ligature, or compress, tight enough to stop the 
hemorrhage entirely from the arteries, or else the blood will flow 
out of the wounded veins. A hemorrhage from the arteries comes 
in spurts, and is bright red in color. The flow from the veins is 
smooth, like water from a rubber tube, and is dark. 

Apply very hot water, Chloroform, solutions of Iron, Powdered 
Tannic Acid, Pulverized Green Tea, Pulverized Oak Bark, or Oak 
Balls, compress the edges of the wound together and hold them 
tightly for half an hour. Apply Vinegar, Cobwebs, Burnt Straw, 
Puff Balls, Smutt from Rye or Corn, Turpentine. 

A saturated solution of Antipyrine and Tannic Acid, mixed and 
applied, is an excellent styptic. 
Hemostatic Collodion —

Carbolic Acid 1 troy oz. 

Tannin 5 drs. 

Benzoic Acid 3 drs.

Elevate one hand and arm above the head. 

Put a 50 ct. piece under the tongue and force it against the 
tissues. 

Press firmly the facial artery on the side of the face from which 
the blood comes; it will be found midway between the chin and the 
tip of the ear, along the edge of the lower jaw-bone. 

Tie a string around a finger and cut off the circulation for ten 
or fifteen minutes. 

Thrust the hands and feet into very hot water. 

FROM THE LUNGS. 

The quickest relief is a hypodermic injection, over the thorax, 
of 1-200 grain of the Sulphate of Atropia. 
For all dangerous Internal Hemorrhages — 

1} Sat. Tinct. Secale Cornutnm 

Sat. Tinct. Cinnamonum cort. ^aa q l 
Sat. Tinct. Oil Erigoroin Car .. J 

M sig. Thirty to sixty drops on sugar, or in mucilage, 
and repeat as often as required until the hemorrhage 
is controlled, when smaller doses should be given on 
extended time. For local hemorrhage of any part 
of the body, where this preparation can be applied, it 
will be found of great efficacy as a safe styptic, espe- 
cially in epistaxis (nose bleed). 

Administer teaspoonful doses of Vinegar every 10 or 15 minutes. 



HEMORRHAGES 131 

Common relief is found in table salt, in teaspoonful doses. 

Administer Wine of Ipecac., in 15 drop doses, every 15 minutes.

Aconite, in drop doses every half hour, will cure it. 

Oil of Erigeron, six drops on sugar, will arrest bleeding from the 
lungs instantly. 

FROM THE STOMACH. 

Hypodermic injections of 40 drops of Ergot over the region of 
the stomach, and the administration of -J grain of Ipecac, by mouth 
every 20 minutes, will act like magic. The same treatment may be 
applied for hemorrhages of the bowel, kidney, bladder, and womb. 

The specific treatment for hemorrhages of the womb consists of 
the use of large quantities of very hot water, poured into the vagina 
with a fountain syringe. This will check every such hemorrhage 
of the womb, and is a woman's safe-guard. 

PASSIVE HEMORRHAGES. 

OF THE UTERUS. 

Trillin, given in one grain doses three times daily, is master of the 
situation. 

Nitric Acid, ten drops in a glass of water, and give a teaspoonful 
every two or three hours. 

Tinct. Cinnamon, in three drop doses every one or two hours. 

Nux Moschata, in minute doses, is a very good remedy for this 
trouble.

should be given to all persons who have a disposition to bleed 
upon every slight injury. (Hemorrhagic Diathesis) such as 
bleeding gums after the extraction of teeth.

daily, is recommended very highly. If Dropsy of the parts

This is the grand mental remedy. Mix these remedies together. 

Passiflora Incarnata tincture in teaspoonful doses daily is a "majestic 
remedy for insanity."

138 LARYNGITIS 

The most important thing to do for any patient who is suffering 
from mild or severe acute inflammation of the Kidney, is to insist 
upon absolute rest, the patient remaining in bed not only for the

LA GRIPPE— LIGHTNING STROKE 139 

LA GRIPPE (Influenza). 

This is a disease sudden in its attack, and its sources or causes 
are as mysterious as the attack is sudden. "Sunspots," or the dis- 
covery of a comet, or a change in government are as liable to be 
the causes of La Grippe as anything else. It is epidemic on land 
and sea alike. The nature of the disease is Rheumatic or Neuralgic 
in character. However, it is not especially fatal. 

It is characterized by sudden seizure of awful headache and grip- 
ping pain, now here, now there, now over the body. The mucus 
surfaces are affected in the form of a Coryza. Any case may be 
cured by the following — 

3J Tinct. Gelsemium 3 ij 

Tinct. Rhus Tox. 5 i 

M sig. Three drops on sugar every hour for 1 6 hours; 
then every two or three hours, until well. This is an 
unfailing remedy in every case. Specific.

an hour, wrap the patient into woolen blankets, and in a half sitting- 
position, cover with fresh earth, except the face, and give a dose

is Chioru^, given in teaspoonful doses four times daily. Three bot- 
tles will cure any case of Gall-stone, Jaundice, Hepatic Colic,

rheumatic condition of the Liver, where the pain runs up and 
around the border of the right shoulder blade.

bile-duct and duodenum. 

Scutillaria, in minute doses frequently repeated, acts exclusively 
upon the duodenum, and cures all forms of intestinal indigestion, 
due to the failure of the Liver to secrete proper proportions 
and quantities of bile. 

Conium Maculatum, in three to five drop doses, will cure ail hyper- 
trophies, or enlargements of the Liver. 



LOCKJAW 141

best remedy for all enlargements or thickened conditions of 
the Liver. It is absolutely, and without fail, a specific. 

Sepia is a fine remedy, given in minute doses. It is a certain cure 
for discolorations of the skin, known as Liver spots. 

Ox Bile Pills stimulate the secretion of bile in the Liver better 
and more certainly than Mercury, or any other known drug. 

Nux Vomica is a good Liver stimulant, given in tincture, three 
drops in water after meals. 

For thickened secretions of the Liver give four drops of Chloro- 
form, three or four times daily. This is good for Gall-stones, and 
will cure the trouble. 

Dioscorea is a specific for Liver Colic. Give four drops of the 
tincture in water every half hour. 



LOCKJAW.

case. This remedy, administered alternately with the Tinct. of 
Hypericum, in minute closes, will not only prevent Lockjaw, but 
will cure the same when present. 

The injured parts should receive a lotion, or an application of 
a 10% to 20% solution in water of Hypericum, which will aid very 
greatly in curing the trouble.

months, the Hydro-Bromate of Hyoscin, 1-50 grain hypodermically 
into the hip, once daily, will cure the severest cases, where they are 
even accompanied with Palsy. 

A very choice remedy is the following — 

I> Hydro-Bromate Hyoscin gr. i 

Aqua dest. 3 ix 

Alcohol 3 i 

M sig. Adult, five drop doses at night only. 

Chronic cases should receive, once daily, a thorough rubbing 
with Common Sulphur powder over the small of the back and hips. 

Atropia Sulph., 1-100 grain hypodermically, is choice where there 
is congested appearance of the face with Palsy of the body.

LUPUS. 

The Tinct. of Thuja is well-nigh a specific for Lupus, given in 
two drop doses every three hours for two or three days; then three 
times daily, and finally morning and evening for two or three months. 
This will cure most cases of Lupus. 

A very excellent remedy is a hypodermic injection of a 2% solu- 
tion of Corrosive Sublimate into the edges of the sore, using four or 
five drops at the several sites of injection. If these remedies do 
not suffice, skin grafting must be resorted to. 



144 MEASLES— MILK LEG— MELANCHOLY 

MEASLES. 

Tinct. Pulsatilla is the great specific for Measles, given in three drop 
doses every two hours. 

The Tinct. of Camphor, one drop on sugar, will restore suppressed 
Measles. 

In nose-bleed from Measles, Ipecac, in minute doses, is very 
excellent. 

MILK LEG. 

Place the limb affected upon a pillow or cushion in a horizontal 
position; let the patient take Hamamelis, in minute doses, hourly, 
and have the limb bathed every three hours with Pond's Extract of 
Witch Hazel, or Hamamelis tincture mixed with Rum, equal parts, 
and applied hot; keep the limb wrapped in raw cotton and covered 
with oil-silk. After the acute stage has passed, bandage the leg 
from toes to hip, and keep it bandaged as long as the swelling con- 
tinues. If pus forms, let it out; the leg must not be used until 
all of the disease has disappeared. 



MELANCHOLY. 

The great remedy for Melancholy is Chelidonium Major Tinc- 
ture, given drop doses every two hours. This one remedy will cure 
any case of Melancholy. 

Special cases of Melancholy, such as arise from business reverses, 
will be cured by Gold in minute doses. 

Or slicIi as arises from disappointed love, by Ignatia, in minute 
doses. 



MOLES— MUMPS 145 

Or such as arises from reflex conditions (uterine troubles), by 
Macrotin, in small doses. 

These last cases are usually accompanied with thoughts of sui- 
cide; a good, wholesome cathartic of Calomel and Bi-carbonate of 
Soda quickly relieves them. 

MOLES. 

Administer Sepia, in minute doses; or Thuja Tincture, in drop 
doses, once in 24 hours, will usually cure these cases without any 
application of caustics. 

Applications may be made, by the use of a tooth-pick, of small 
quantities of Acid Nitrate of Mercury, or of Glacial Acetic Acid. 
In the use of either, carefully avoid the sound skin. Very large* 
Moles are best removed by the knife. 

MUMPS. 

The true specific for ordinary Mumps is the Tinct. of Belladonna, 
in drop doses, every two hours. 

Jaborandi Tincture, in ordinary doses, is equally a specific for 
Mumps. 

The Iodide of Mercury is best where the mouth is full of water, 
given in 1-30 grain doses. 

Mumps shifting to the testicles or the ovaries will find speedy 
relief in three drop doses of the Tinct. of Pulsatilla, every hour; and 
thorough application of the Spirits of Camphor, over the parts. 
It found in a man, the scrotum should be enveloped with a poultice 
of White Beans, as hot as can be borne; and if found in a woman, 
the poultice should be applied over the pelvis. In 30 minutes the 
pain and swelling will be gone. 



146 MISCARRIAGE— MALARIA— NIGHTMARE 

MISCARRIAGE. 

Aletris Ferinosa, given in full doses, will prevent miscarriage. 

The grand specific remedy is Tinct. Sabina, in drop doses every 
half hour. 

Secale Cor., in minute doses, prevents miscarriage at the third month. 

If expulsion has been determined upon by nature, give Ipecac, 
two grains, and await the result, carefully guarding the hemorrhage. 

Tinct. of Gelsemium, 10 drops in half a cup of hot water, taken in 
two doses 10 minutes apart, will open the mouth of the womb 
in 30 minutes, sufficient for the foetus to pass out. 

If a convulsion occurs, give six drops of the Tinct. of Veratrum 
Viride, in hot water, and repeat in 30 minutes. This will control 
the convulsion. 

See "Abortion." 

MALARIA. 

To guard against Malaria burn a thimbleful of Gun-powder in 
your bed-room or tent, trunk and wardrobe, thus keeping your 
clothing saturated with the gas. You can travel in any land, no 
matter how unhealthy, without danger of sickness. 

Put oil-cloth on the floor of your sleeping room or tent, and 
renew the painting on it once a year. 

For cure see "Ague." 

NIGHTMARE. 

Correct the digestive apparatus, and you will cure nightmare. 

Nux Vomica, in drop doses of the tincture 30 minutes after break- 
fast and dinner, in a little water, and Sulphur, minute doses at 
bedtime, will cure all these cases. 
When sleeping, lie upon the side and not upon the back. 



NAILS 147 



NAILS. 



Sulphur and Hepar Sulphur, in minute doses, are excellent nail 
remedies. 

Silicea, in minute doses, and Fluoric Acid, in minute doses, will 
cure diseased nails. 

Black Hellebore, in minute doses, prevents the nails from falling off. 

Ingrowing Nails. 

Caution — Never cut off the corners of either the toe or finger 
nails. They should be cut so that the corners will grow out over 
the flesh; and if there is a tendency of ingrowing of the nails, they 
should be cut in a concave, and the Oleate of Tin applied along the 
back of the nail. If it becomes necessary to remove the nail of the 
toe or finger, do so with as little pain as possible. Cover it with 
a thin layer of Nitrate of Silver, and apply a poultice; after 24 
hours this will loosen it. Continue the caustic and poultice alter- 
nately until the nail can be lifted off. If the corners of the nails 
produce an ulceration, apply Perchloride of Iron, in powder form, 
under the free edge of it. 

If ulceration occurs at the corners of the nail, lift it up and drop 
a drop of hot tallow under it. This is painless and effectual. 

To remove white spots from nails, give minute doses of Fluoric 
Acid, or the Phosphate of Lime. 

Natrum Muriaticum, in minute doses, will cure brittle and cracked 
nails. Apply Oleate of Tin. 

A split nail of either the finger or toe may be easily cured by 
boring a hole with the point of a knife, or a shoemaker's awl, through 
the half moon at the root of the nail, and behind the crack. This 
can be done without pain; and as the nail grows out, the crack will 
disappear. 



Persons afflicted with Tuberculosis always have sharp, pointed 
nails like hooks (hook-shaped), with hump backs. This invariably 
holds good and true, and is absolutely diagnostic. 

If the finger or toe nail is injured, or loosened, it should not be 
removed, but left in place as long as possible, to act as a guide and 
support for the new nail. If this is observed carefully, it will insure 
a new, smooth nail. 

To polish the finger nails, use Oil of Almonds and a Chamois 
Skin for the purpose. The nails should never be scraped or filed. 
It causes them to grow crooked, and forms unseemly lines length- 
wise on the nail. 



NAUSEA. 

Ipecac, in very minute doses, is the grand specific for Nausea and 
vomiting due to any cause. The dose must be frequently re- 
peated, say every 10 or 15 minutes. 

Tinct. of Iodine, in drop doses, is very excellent for Nausea. 

Iris Versicolor (Blue Flag), in small doses, is a specific for Nausea, 
accompanied with a peculiar headache that begins over the 
eyes, or for a periodical headache occuring once every one or 
two weeks. 

Tinct. Colchicum, in drop doses, is curative in a Nausea accom- 
panied by rheumatic pains. 

White of Egg, a small quantity stirred in ice water; then stir the 
remaining part of the white of the egg into a froth, and let 
it float on the top of the water. Drink freely of this when 
thirsty. 



A Mustard Plaster applied over the region of the stomach, will 
arrest Nausea immediately. 

Put one drop of Tobacco juice in a glass of water, and take a 
teaspoonful every minute. This will arrest vomiting in 8 or 10 
minutes. 

Veratrum Alb., in minute doses, will cure Nausea accompanied with 
Diarrhoea.

free nostril, and the substance will come out of the other.

NUMBNESS. 

Numbness of the body or the extremities, is due to either a dis- 
eased condition of the genital organs, or to a hardening of the 
arteries. If the numbness is confined to one finger at a time, it is 
due to Kidney trouble. 

If the genital organs are the fault, the remedy must be selected 
accordingly. 



154 NYMPHOMANIA 

One of the following will be found serviceable: Secale Cornutum, 
Cannabis Indica, Hyoscyamus, Ignatia, or Cimicifuga.

ture, in three drop doses two or three times daily, will cure the case.

spoonful every three hours, is excellent.

thing else, and you will get thin. 

Put aside your selfishness and be more than ordinarily active 
in making other people comfortable, rather than yourself. 



OEDEMA (Dropsy). 

If I were to choose two drugs that will cure more cases of 
Oedema, than all others combined, I would name Apocynum Can- 
nabinum, and Apis Melifica. 

Tinct. of Apocynum, in five drop doses every hour or two, will cure 
the severest cases of Dropsy, and especially the form known as 
Cardiac Dropsy, or Anasarca. It has the value of increasing 
the activity of the Kidneys and lessening the action of the 
heart without any of the complications that arise out of the 
administration of Digitalis.

a good remedy. Applied only once. 

For Neuralgia, administer Cimicifuga, in minute doses every

For Dropsy of the ovary, Lilium Tig., Sodium Sulph., Cannabis 
Indica, Bromide of Potash, or Apis Melifica, will cover all such cases. 

Cystic tumors of the ovary will be cured, if not too large, by Apis 
Melifica, in minute doses. 

For Colic of the ovary, Colocynth tincture, in drop doses given 
in hot water every 10 minutes, completely relieves in one hour. 

OZAENA (Chronic Catarrh of Nose). 

Ozaena being a chronic form of nose trouble, requires persistent 
treatment. The best remedies are: Bichromate of Potash, in very 
minute doses three times daily, where the secretions ar thick and 
ropy. 

Tinct. of Pulsatilla, in drop doses, where the secretion drops back 
into the throat and relieved in the open air.

PILES. 

The nearest specific for Piles, is Aesculus Hippo. (Horse Chest- 
nut) tincture, given as follows: Put 10 drops in a half glass of 
water, and take a teaspoonful four or five times daily. Make oint- 
ment as follows — 

I* Ex. Aesculus Hippo. 3 ij 

Vaseline o l 

M sig. Half teaspoonful through a glass syringe into the 

rectum morning and evening. This will cure falling 

of the bowel and piles. 



- PILES 169 

A good home remedy for Piles, is Dry Mullein Leaves burned in 
a chamber-vessel, sprinkling some pulverized Resin upon the leaves, 
and have the patient sit over the vessel for 10 minutes twice daily. 

Oxide of Zinc Ointment, used by a small glass syringe, twice daily, 
is very excellent. 

For inflamed protruding Piles, apply a poultice of Plantain, 
pounded to a pulp and applied cold and raw; this relieves the pain 
instantly, and brings the cure. 

Tinct. Collinsonia (Stone Fruit), given in drop doses four or five 
times daily, will cure as speedily as Horse Chestnut, and espe- 
cially the Piles of constipated women.

SURGICAL TREATMENT. 



If the Piles are very large, a ligature is the best method of re- 
moval. If small and accompanied by fissures or cracks in the rec- 
tum, give the patient Ether, and thoroughly stretch the rectum. 
This will cure the case.

Peal a potato and cut it round and smooth the size of the rectum. 
Then inject into it with a hypodermic syringe 5 or 6 drops of the 
tincture of Horse Chestnut, and introduce it into the rectum. The 
remedy will be absorbed and cure the Piles. Very choice treatment. 

PLEURISY. 

Tinct. of Aconite and Tinct. of Bryonia, given in drop doses alter- 
nately every hour, quickly cures the patient. 

Tinct. of Causticum, one to three drops in a wineglass of water 
every two or three hours, is nearly specific for Pleurisy. 

Apis Melifica, in minute doses, and Tinct. of Canthatis, in minute 
doses, alternately every two hours, will remove all effusions 
that may occur in the pleural cavity. 



SURGICAL TREATMENT. 

Put a wide, adhesive strap over the ribs to prevent motion and 
to produce compression. 

Keep the parts warm with a dry, hot flannel. 

If pus forms, remove a portion of rib and insert a drainage tube, 
and wash the cavity with a solution of Bi-Borate of Soda every 
day twice. 



PNEUMONIA— POLYURIA lil 

PNEUMONIA (Lung Fever). 

Fl. Ex. of Veratrum Viride, in drop doses every hour, will cure all 
cases of Pneumonia that are acute. 

Tartar Emetic, in minute doses, should be given twice daily, as soon 
as abundant secretion occurs; but continue throughout the case 
Veratrum Viride. 

Rhus Tox. is very choice, in minute doses, two or three times daily, 
for the rusty expectoration. 

The case may find comfort in the use of a tight flannel bandage 
extending from armpits to below the ribs. Do not employ moist 
or wet poultices. 

POLYPUS. 

Silicea, in minute closes, is specific for Polypus. 
Carbonate of Lime is very choice. 
Tenerium is a specific for nasal Polypus. 

SURGICAL TREATMENT. 

Seize the Polypus with a pair of rat-tooth forceps, and twist it 
off. The bleeding may be arrested by an application of Per Sul- 
phate of Iron. 

POLYURIA (Excessive Urine). 

The best remedy is Nitrate of Uranium, in one-half grain doses 
two or three times daily. 

If due to nervous conditions, Valeriana or Ignatia will relieve 
the case. 



172 POTT'S DISEASE— PROCTITIS 

POTT'S DISEASE (Rickets). 

Silicea, in minute doses, and Phosphate of Lime, in minute doses, 
with good, wholesome food, will usually improve the case. 

SURGICAL TREATMENT. 

A properly adjusted brace from armpit to hip-point, and lifting 
the weight of the body from the spine, is very essential, and aids 
materially in supporting the spine. 

POULTICES. 

Cabbage, Onions, or Plantain, are the best poultices for inflamma- 
tions of all kinds. 

Cloths wrung out of hot water in which potatoes have been 
boiled, make a very useful poultice. 

Bread soaked in hot milk — Linseed Meal — Hot Salt bags — Hot 
plates wrapped in flannel — Flannel wrung out of hot Turpentine 
water; all of these make excellent poultices. 

Tobacco poultice may be used upon any part of the body except 
the abdomen. It must be left on the part only a few minutes 
at a time, and must not be applied to open sores. 

PROCTITIS. 

(Inflammation of the Rectum.) 

Magnesium Phos. and Ferrum Phos., both in minute doses, will 
generally relieve these cases. 



PROSTATE GLAND 173 

Inject high up into the rectum, Fl. Ex. Rhatany, diluted well 
in water, will cure these cases in a short time. 

Tinct. of Collinsonia, in one or two drop doses four or five times 
daily, will cure women thus afflicted. 

See "Bowel." 

PROSTATE GLAND. 

Tinct. of Thuja, in drop doses, is a specific for enlarged Prostrate. 

Sanmetto, in teaspoonful doses three times daily, is a very choice 
remedy. 

Tinct. of Phytolacca, in three drop doses, quickly relieves the case. 

If there is difficulty in passing urine, have the patient fill the 
lungs as full of air as possible, and the urine will flow freely as the 
air or breath is expelled. 

A good method, in some cases, to expand the urethra, is to have 
the patient draw the fore-skin over the head of the penis, holding it 
firmly between the thumb and finger, and slowly filling or destend- 
ing with urine. This will dilate the urethra as far back as the 
bladder, and is known as hydraulic dilation. 

Castration of men past 50 years of age is very much preferable 
to the use of the cathater, which should be avoided until every other 
method fails. 

Place the penis into a tumbler of hot water, and allow the patient 
to urinate while the penis is in the hot water. This will be done 
painlessly and freely. 

Pruritus of the anus will often be the evidence of disease of the 
prostate. 



174 PROSTRATION— PUSTULES 

PROSTRATION. 

Hot milk with a pinch of salt is the true remedy for prostration 
from any cause whatever, except from heat, and then give Nitro- 
Glycerine in drop doses; or Spirits of Ammonia or Coffee are to 
be given as stimulants. 

PROUD FLESH. 

Sanguinaria Root, pulverized and applied, removes at once. 

Chloride of Zinc and Flour, equal parts; add water enough to make 
a paste, and apply. This quickly removes proud flesh. 

Apply strong Tinct. of Thuja three times daily for a week or two; 
sometimes the excrescence falls off in two or three days. Thuja, 
in officinal doses, may be taken at the same time. 

PTERYGIUM. 

Silicea, in minute doses, is a specific. 

Sulphur, in minute doses, also cures Pterygium. 

PTYALISM (Salivation). 

Tinct. of Blue Flag, in minute doses, cures.

Silicea for large pustules, in minute doses. 

Tartar Emetic, in minute doses, for pustules resembling small-pox. 



PYAEMIA— RESPIRATION 175 

PYAEMIA (Pus Poisoning). 

Arsenic, given in three or five drop doses every four hours, is the 
true specific. 

Quinine Sulph., in two grain doses, should accompany the adminis- 
tration of Arsenic. 

Tinct. of Baptisia, in five drop doses, is a remedy to be relied upon 
at all times for infections. 



RANULA (Cyst in Duct of the Mouth). 

Fl. Ex. Golden Seal, in water, used as a wash and swallowed in 
8 drop doses, cures. 

QUINSY (Suppurating Tonsils). 

Hepar Sulphur (Calcium Sulphuret) and Silicea, both given in 
minute doses alternately every two hours, quickly relieves. 

Calcium Iodide, given in ^ grain doses, is very choice. , 

Baryta Iodide, in minute doses, cures. 

RESPIRATION (Breathing). 

Arsenic and Apis Melifica, in minute doses,, cures difficult respiration. 

Bryonia and Carbonate of Potash, both in minute doses alternately, 
cures painful respiration. 

Tartar Emetic and Squilla. both in minute doses, cures wheezing, 
phlegmy respiration. 



176 RESTLESSNESS— RICKETS 

I 

Ipecac and Opium, in minute doses, cures snoring respiration. 

Yeratrum Viride, in drop doses, cures slow respiration. 

Cictus Virosa cures suspended respiration. 

Grindelia Rubusta, in minute doses, where the patient stops breath- 
ing when he falls asleep. 



RESTLESSNESS. 

Tinct. Belladonna, for persons who are sleepy but cannot go to sleep. 

Coffee Crudum, in minute doses, for irritable, restless, wide-awake 
persons. 

Rhus Tox., in minute doses, where the patient is caused to change 
the position frequently to obtain rest. 

Arsenous Acid, in minute doses, where the person is restless after 
midnight. 

Cina, in minute doses, for restless children. 

Passirlora Incarnata, teaspoonful doses 3 times daily, is unequaled. 

RICKETS. 

The administration of Carbonate or Phosphate of Lime, in minute 
doses, is the true remedy. 

Silicea, in minute doses frequently repeated, should be given if 
suppurating conditions are present. 



LEUCORRHEA 113 

If from cessation of lochia, Bryonia alb., in minute doses fre- 
quently given, will correct the trouble. 

If the malady is due to specific causes, the anti-specific treatment 
must ensue by the administration of Naphthalin, in grain doses 
mixed in sugar of milk, and given four times daily. 
Tinct. Gelsemium, in five drop doses in hot water five or six times 
daily, will aid very much in the cure. 

Intra-uterine injections of sterilized blood serum, or sterilized 
Bovinine, through a recurrent cathater, is a method and cure which 
I have devised for these cases of specific Metritis, and yields the 
speediest results of any known method. These injections are given 
twice daily and hot. 

Vaginal injections of the Bromide of Potash, one drachm to the 
pint of water, in cases of so-called irritable uterus, diffuse pelvic pains, 
and hysterical Neurosis in various parts of the body, are said to be 
very valuable.

LEUCORRHEA. 

Leucorrhea may be either acute or chronic. Acute forms of Leu- 
corrhea may arise from mal-position of the uterus, Endo-metritis, 
from acute febril diseases, taking cold, poorly nourished system, or 
chemical irritation. It may arise from the body or the cervix of 
the womb, due to laceration, or from the vaginal vault. The dis- 
charge from the body of the womb is usually found very consistent: 



114 LEUCORRHEA 

In Lumps, chunks or plugs. Its color is glairry. Its odor offensive 
and purulent. The secretion from the cervix is usually milky and 
viscid. The reaction from both the discharges is alkaline. The 
former containing pavement epithelial cells, and the latter con- 
taining columnar epithelial cells. While the discharge from the 
vagina is curdy, cheesy, acid and corrosive, containing tessilated and 
squamous epithelial cells. Reaction Acid. If an Acid Leucorrhea 
exists, it may be Gonorrheal, in which case a microscope will reveal 
gonnococcus. The curative means will depend entirely upon the 
cause of the difficulty. Remove the cause and the discharge ceases. 
If from Laceration of the cervix, repair the injury without delay, as 
local applications will be of no permanent service whatever — a mis- 
take too often indulged in by physicians, to the great detriment, 
disappointment and financial loss of the patient. If the discharge 
arises from the cavity of the uterus, an intra-uterine application may 
be necessary, particularly so in the chronic forms and in which case 
granular masses will be found covering the endo-metrium. These 
latter must be removed by the currette. 

CAUTION. 

Never make intra-uterine applications of Carbolic Acfd, unless 
pure, and never make intra-uterine applications of any liquid, unless 
through a recurrent cathater, or previous dilatation of the cervical 
neck of the womb. Intra-uterine applications of Tinct. of Iodine, or 
Pinus Canadensis, or corrosive Sublimate, hot, will be of great 
service in the treatment oi the case. Also Chloride Tinct. of Iron in 
cases due to relaxation of the body of the womb, or the vaginal walls. 

TREATMENT. 

Iodide of Mercury, if the discharge is worse at night. 
Iodide of Iron, if due to general loss of vitality. 



LEUCORRHEA 115 

Iodide of Arsenic, if offensive and corrosive. Also Kreosotum. 

Iodine, if accompanied by a loss of flesh while the appetite remains 
good. 

Helonin, if the patient is of a hysterical type with depression of 
spirits. 

Belladonna, in the acute form and accompanied by sterility. 

Aletris Cordial may be made by mixing together, one drachm of 
the Tinct. of Aletris and four ounces of Sherry Wine, giving one 
teaspoonful three times daily. This applies particularly to Leu- 
corrhea due to mal-position of the womb, or to ladies broken 
down or worn out by womb trouble and loss of appetite. 

Sulphite of Calcium, ^ grain three times daily. 

Sulphate of Iron, in ordinary doses and applied to the womb, is one 
of the best remedies for Leucorrhea due to a relaxed condition 
of the womb and vagina. 

VAGINAL LOTIONS.

Long experience and observation have led me to the conclusion 
that the majority of female complaints are due to acid conditions 
of the fluids of the body, especially of the mucus membrane, and 
that this acid state should be neutralized as the first step in all suc- 
cessful treatment. Therefore, anti-acids should be given for at least 
one week before local treatments are employed. 

ABDOMINAL TUMORS. 

When an abdominal tumor is discovered, the first question that 
presents itself, is: What is it? All abdominal tumors are either 
fibrous, fibro-cystic, or cystic. 

Fibroids may be found extra-uterine, inter-uterine (between the 
muscular layers of the womb), or intra-uterine. They grow very 
slowly and painlessly and are usually of small size. Their presence 
is always indicated where severe hemorrhages and excessive flowing 
from the womb occurs. This is diagnostic. They are hard and 
nodular like the formation of a potato. There may be several of 
these growths present at the same time. 



ABDOMINAL TUMORS 11? 

TREATMENT. 

The remedy, is Secale Cornutum or Ustilago, in long continued 
doses covering many months. 

The Chloride of Ammonia, in 10 grain doses administered for a long 
time, in connection with the administration of Ergot, in half- 
teaspoonful doses, is said to have cured these cases where the 
tumor is of small size. 

Fl. Ex. Hydrastis, in eight drop doses three times daily, has cured 
a few of these cases in my practice where Ergot and Ammonia 
failed. 

If the tumor is of large size and the hemorrhages are dangerous, 
medicine should not be administered for their removal, as sloughing 
is liable to occur where Ergot is administered in large and continued 
doses. The removal of large Fibroid Growths, can be more safely 
accomplished and with better results with the knife, or by the 
surgeon. 

Fibro-Cystic tumors are to be dealt with after the same manner as 
the foregoing. 

Cystic Tumors. If the growth is below the umbilicus and in the 
median line, and is three or more years old, it is uterine, and 
painless, and may be a Fibroid. If so it will be accompanied by 
severe hemorrhages. If it is three years old, and ascends above 
the umbilicus and remains stationary, while the patient lies upon 
either side, it is Ovarian and, therefore, cystic, or Sarcomatous. 
If it is malignant, there will exist a dropsy of the belly and of 
the feet, and the urea passed during any 24 hours, will be about 
180 grains or three drachms, which is very much below the 
normal. This is adsolutely diagnostic of Malignant growths 
in the abdomen of women. There may be found in a woman a 



118 ABDOMINAL TUMORS 

cyst of the broad-ligament, encysted peritoneal dropsy, and a 
cyst of the ovary, all of which contain an opelescent fluid. How 
shall we distinguish the difference? The first does not con- 
tain albumin. The second does contain albumin, and the 
third contains both albumin and par-albumin. Obtain a speci- 
men of the fluid by aspiration, and submit it to a test for albu- 
min, and if it is present, the cyst is either of the second or third 
variety. Now add an excess of Acetic Acid to the specimen, 
and if it clears up, it is en-cysted peritoneal dropsy. If it does 
not clear up, it is a cyst of the ovary. This is absolutely 
diagnostic. 

If the tumor is suspected as complicated with pregnancy, the 
pulse of the patient will remain the same in the three positions: 
standing — sitting — and lying. This is likewise diagnostic. With a 
change of color in the breast and the stationary character of the 
pulse, and the patient is not hemorrhoidal, and the uterus is of the 
egg-plant color, purple, and the lips of the womb are soft like the 
lips of the mouth, the tumor is pregnancy. 

The uterine murmur is not a reliable sign of pregnancy, as it 
may exist in Fibroid tumors and Aneurism of the aorta. 



TREATMENT. 

Ovarian cysts are said to have been cured by the administration 
of minute doses of Apis Melifica. This is not true of cysts that have 
attained any considerable size. 

Surgical pocedure is the proper one for the removal of these 
growths. 

Encysted peritoneal dropsy may be removed by several and 
repeated aspirations. 

So also may a cyst of the broad-ligament be cured by the same 
method. 



HEADACHE 119 

However, the surgical removal of a broad-ligament is the best 
procedure. 

HEADACHE. 

Headache may be either congestive and local, or reflex. Con- 
gestive is due to local causes, and reflex may be due to many causes, 
viz. : Rectal diseases — uterine — ovarian — tubal — cystic — vaginal — 
gastric — hepatic — splenic — in fact a reflex headache may have its 
origin from any of the abdominal or pelvic viscera. Headache being 
such a common malady, demands the attention of the physician more 
frequently than any other with which he meets. The duty of every 
physician, is to relieve this suffering in the quickest way possible, 
palliatively. The curative treatment depends entirely upon the cause. 
There is no sense in giving medicine to patients whose headache 
arises from surgical diseases of the pelvis, such as Piles, Fissures, 
Fistulas, Pappilae, Rectal Abscesses, Displacements of the Womb, 
or any mal-position of Genito-urinary Organs. These must be 
treated surgically as well as medicinally. 

REMEDIES (Palliative). 

Ammonol, ten grain doses, repeat in 30 minutes. This is the first 
great remedy. 

Potassium Iodide, two grains in a half glass of water, sip slowly, 
relieves in 15 minutes. 

Tinct Melilotus, one drop, relieves in 5 minutes. 

REMEDIES (Curative).

cumulative effects. Give it in all heart diseases from two to five 
drop doses of the fluid extract every three or five hours. This 
remedy is excellent in all forms of Dropsy also.

HEARTBURN— HICCOUGH— HYSTERIA 123 

HEARTBURN (Water-Brash). 

Tinct. Cinnamon, in minute doses. 

Chalk, in three grain doses. 

Nux Vomica, in grain doses. 

Lactopeptin, ten to twenty grains. 

Salt, one-half teaspoonful in a little cold water, affords instant relief. 

Argentum Nitricum, in minute doses, cures heartburn. 

Arsenic, in minute doses, is unexcelled. 

HICCOUGH (Spasms of the Diaphragm). 

The best method of curing hiccough instantly is by compression 
of the phrenic nerve, which passes down the neck upon either side 
of the wind-pipe, and is easily compressed inside of the inner end 
of the clavicle, or collar-bone, holding the thumbs or fingers tightly 
at this point of the neck. This will soon stop hiccough. 

Paint the sides of the neck with the Tinct. Iodine. 
Quinine, ten grains, is a sure cure; one dose only. 

Snuff Pepper, or anything that will produce sneezing, will stop 
hiccough. 

HYSTERIA. 

Dashing cold water into the face of the patient will revive him 
at once. 

Asafoetida, five grains in hot milk given as an injection into the 
bowel two or three times daily, will cure Hysteria. 

Cimicifuga, in minute doses, at the change of life, or irregular 
monthly. 



124 HEAT RASH— HIVES

disposition to commit suicide.

ground together thoroughly, and give three grains three or 
four times daily, cures. 

Tmct. Ignatia, in drop doses, where the Hysteria is due to disap- 
pointed love, or grief of any kind; this will speedily cure. 

Give Hysterical patients Sumbul Cordial, made of Sumbul tinc- 
ture, two drachms, and the best Sherry Wine, four ounces. Give 
a teaspoonful three times daily. 

HEAT RASH. 

(Prickly Heat.) 

Tinct. of Nettle Weed (Urtica Urens), is the sheet anchor for Nettle 
Rash or Heat Rash. Give drop doses every two or three hours. 

Tinct. of Rumex Crisp (Yellow Dock), in 10 drop doses in water, 
is a specific. 

HIVES. 

Carb. Ammonia, in two grain doses, is a certain cure. 

Dulcamara, in minute doses, where hives are due to living or work- 
ing in damp places. 

Chloral Hydrate, in grain doses, cures without one failure. 

The sheet anchor for hives is : Six honey bees dropped alive into 
four ounces of Alcohol, and allowed to stand 24 hours; then filter 
the liquid through fine cheese cloth, and take five drops in water 
every two or three hours. This is an absolute cure for all forms 
of hives. 



HORNIA— HYDROPHOBIA 125 

Salicylate of Soda, in 15 grain doses, every two hours until four 
doses have been taken. This is likewise a certain relief. 

Quinine, in four grain doses after meals, is curative of hives. A 
salve made of Quinine and Vaseline will stop the itching of 
hives when applied. So will vinegar. 

Vinegar, in tablespoonful doses three or four times daily, will cure 
when all else fails. 

HERNIA (Rupture). 

Seize the patient by the feet and turn him wrong end up; hold 
in this position for a few minutes, and the bowel will go back to 
its place. 

Place the patient into a hot bath for 20 or 30 minutes, and the 
rupture may be reduced very readily. 

Apply Ether on cotton for 15 or 20 minutes, and success may 
result. 

Give the patient cupful after cupful of hot coffee, and bathe the 
parts with the same. Pretty soon the gas will escape and the bowel 
will go back into its place, after the hips have been elevated. If 
these fail, call in the surgeon, and proceed at once to operate. 

HYDROPHOBIA. 

Tinct. Belladonna, five drop doses every hour or two. Keep the 
patient under its influence for weeks. If spasms set in, give 
ten drop doses. Keep up a free perspiration by the use of the 
Tinct. of Jaborandi, hypodermically. 

Apply Slake Lime plentifully to the parts, and renew as often as 
the Lime becomes green; then bathe the parts with hot Vinegar, 
wipe perfectly dry, and cauterize with Nitric Acid. This last 
treatment is preventive of Hydrophobia. 



126 HOMESICKNESS— HAY FEVER 

The remedy that never fails, in the case of a mad-dog bite, is to 
procure a half dozen fowls, pluck the feathers from the fleshy part 
of one, and tear off the skin of the part and apply the raw surface 
to the bite; the fowl will die in ten seconds, the second in two min- 
utes, the third in six minutes, the fourth in ten minutes, the fifth 
will become giddy, but will not die. The poison is extracted — the 
patient is saved. 

HOMESICKNESS.

curative.

give three grains every hour during the day. This is a posi- 
tive cure. 



HIGH iEMPERATURE— HAIR 127 

Insert dry absorbent cotton so as to fill pretty nearly the cavity 
of the nose; renew it twice daily, and in a few days the patient is 
well. If the cotton is first soaked in Vinegar and then dried, it 
acts better. 

Tinct. Sabadilla, in two drop doses four times daily, cures in a week. 

Nitrate of Sanguinaria, in minute doses, is a sheet anchor. 

Use Marchand's Hydrozone as a preventive. 
See "Asthma." 

HIGH TEMPERATURE. 

Ammonol, in ten grain doses, and repeat in an hour. 
Tinct. Aconite, in two drop doses every hour or two. 
Tinct. Veratrum Viride, in two drop doses every hour or two. 

Application of Alcohol to the surfaces. 

Cold Bath. 

In all cases of high temperature, from inflammatory causes, be 
careful not to reduce the temperature down to the normal, as tem- 
perature aids in the elimination of the disease; therefore, it should 
never be reduced to the normal point too quickly. 

HAIR. 

I will state as a theory that which I believe will be demonstrated 
to be tenable; namely, that premature baldness and loss of hair in 
men are due largely to overindulgence in sexuality. 

Heredity and diseased conditions of the scalp will account for 
loss of hair in some cases, but such as are due to heredity may be 
traced directly to excess in sexuality. The testimony is, that those 



128 HAIR 

suffering from overworked sexual organs complain of a sore, tender 
feeling or excessive itching over the top of the head and at the 
hair-roots, and following overindulgence the hair is lost in large 
quantities. In woman the loss is not so great, and the reasons are 
apparent at first thought. The loss of vital fluids is not great in 
woman. In men of the above characteristics the loss of hair is 
not confined to the scalp, but is noticeable over the whole body; 
so that the remedy is, "cease excess." The drug best adapted for 
these cases is Tincture of China off., taken in 5 drop doses three 
times daily. With these directions I have cured many cases. The 
following application should be made to the scalp — 

I> Eau de Cologne § vij 

Aqua Ammonia o ss 

Tinct. Cantharis gtts. x 

Oil Rose Mary gtts. xxiv 

M sig. Apply to the roots of the hair. This prevents its 
falling and inspires its growth. 

The sheet anchor for falling hair and diseases of the scalp is — 

I£ Corrosive Sublimate grs. v 

Eau de Cologne o vn J 

Tinct. Cantharis gtts. xv 

Castor Oil 3 i 

M sig. Apply once daily. 

A good old-fashioned remedy for falling hair is Onion juice, 
applied twice weekly. 

For baldness apply an emulsion made of Black Oats, by boiling 
and grinding the same, shells and all; strain through a cheese cloth 
and dilute the liquid until it is the consistency of cream. Apply 
this night and morning to the scalp. 

Administer by the mouth, in small doses, Hepar Sulphur, where 
a pustular or papular eruption exists. 



SLEEP 133 

SLEEP. 

Passiflora Incarnata, in teaspoonful doses, will induce quiet, natural, 
restful sleep. 

Belladonna, in minute doses, when sleepy and cannot go to sleep. 
Coffee, in minute doses, produces sleep in persons who are "wide 
awake." 

Camphor, one drop in water and taken on going to bed, will induce 
sleep. 

The Mono-Bromide of Camphor, in two grain doses, acts like a 
charm. 

To insure a good night's rest, rub the body all over with a 
coarse towel or flesh brush. This will usually induce quiet sleep. 

Pressure upon the anterior frontanel of an infant will directly 
induce sleep. 

Nitre, burned in the room on going to bed, will produce quiet sleep 
to persons troubled with Asthma or Cough. 

Light eating before retiring is often good. Sleeplessness is- 
often caused by a starved brain. 

Raising the foot of the bed and sleeping with the head low will 
keep an extra blood supply in the brain; this will nourish and 
gratify the brain, and induce restful sleep. 

Grendelia Rub., in minute doses, for cessation of breathing after 
falling asleep. 



194 SMALL POX 

SMALL POX. 

The true remedy for Small Pox is Tartar Emetic, in minute 
doses. Two grains of the powder put into a glass of water, and' 
give the patient throughout the entire case a teaspoonful every five 
hours. Make the solution fresh thus every day. 

Baptisia Tincture, in minute doses, when the poison infects the 
whole system and resembles blood poisoning. Give the drug 
in two drop doses every hour or two for 24 hours. Then less 
frequently. It is well to sometimes give this drug occasionally 
while using the Tartar Emetic. 



Arsenic, in minute doses, is very choice in the malignant forms of 
Small Pox, when the pustules do not rupture early. 

Sulpho-Phenique, in ordinary doses occasionally throughout the 
case, will prevent pitting. 

Vinegar, in tablespoonful doses three times daily, will cure as well 
as prevent Small Pox. This should be administered from 12 
to 15 days. Children should take a smaller dose. 

Cyanide of Potash, in a strong solution sprinkled about the floors, 
on the stairways, and in closets, every day twice, and nobody 
in the house will have Small Pox. 



Tinct. of Iodine, at the outset of the disease, painted on the inside of 
the thighs, will prevent pitting of the face, as all the pustules 
will appear where the painting was done. 



SNEEZING— SOMNAMBULISM 105 

In all cases of Small Pox and Scarlet Fever the skin Jiould be 
rubbed daily with Carbolic Acid, one drachm, mixed in Vaseline, 
five ounces. This will not only relieve the itching, but will also 
disinfect the skin and prevent the scales from contaminating other 
members of the family. 

Hen's Oil, rubbed all over the body, plentifully, will prevent 
Small Pox from pitting. 

Is it Chickenpox or Small Pox? You may open the pustule of 
Chickenpox with a single stab of a needle at its base, and press out 
all the contents; but it requires several such stabs around the base 
of a Small Pox pustule before you can press out all the lymph. If 
the pustules of Small Pox on the face be thus opened and emptied 
of their contents while in a liquid state, there will be no pitting — 
no pock marks. 

SNEEZING. 

Onion Juice, three drops on sugar, is the best remedy. 

Sanguinaria Nit, in minute doses, is a specific for persistent 
Sneezing. 

Insert a pledget of cotton loosely into each nostril so as not to 
interfere with the breathing. Renew it every day. 

Belladonna, in minute doses every hour for four or five hours, will 
cure these cases.

immediately awakened as soon as their bare feet touch the large 
piece of oil-cloth placed before their beds. 



196 SORE NIPPLES—SPASMS

Phosphorus, in 1-50 grain doses, after meals. It is better adminis- 
tered in drop doses of the tincture.

the quiet sleep of such persons.

be moved without pain. 

A hot Hay Poultice is a specific, especially in chronic conditions.

STERILITY (Childlessness). 

All married people who are childless should undergo a thorough 
physical examination by a competent physician, to ascertain whether 
the childless conditions are the fault of the husband or the wife. 
It is not always the fault of the wife, by a long shot, as is commonly 
supposed; but may be, and often is, the fault of the husband, due 
to old strictures, either from masturbation or Gonorrhea (clap); or 
it may be due in him because of Spermatorrhea, where the sper- 
matozoa are not fully developed or matured before discharged. Gen- 
erally it is due to the life and habits of the wife, or to some mal-posi- 
tion of the genital organ. Thus, it is quite necessary, in such cases, 
to make a thorough examination. In the female, sterility may be 
due to anti-flexions of the womb, but not to any other flexions.

the trouble.

looking, with ragged edges and a lardlike substance in the 
bottom of them. Dust the powder into the ulcer also. The rem- 
edy must be given in minute doses. 

Caution — Be careful not to keep ulcerated surfaces too hot or 
bandaged too tightly. The bandages and dressings must be very 
light, and cool. Best not bandage ulcers of the legs at all. 



URETHRA. 

Cannabis Sativa and Cantharis, given in minute doses, are the true 
specifics for acute inflammation of the urethra. 

Tinct. Gelsemium, in five drop doses in water, five or six times daily, 
soon cures acute inflammation, even Gonorrhea. 

Apis Melifica, in minute doses frequently repeated, is the true specific 
for dropsical and swollen conditions of the urethra. 

Naphthalin, in minute doses, is curative of chronic inflammation oft 
the urethra, also chronic Gonorrhea. It is reliable. 



URINE 219 

URINE. 

Painful urinating: Cantharis, in minute doses, for pain with 
blood, and desire to pass it frequently. Having a straining, burning, 
and smarting sensation with a feeling as if not through urinating. 

Berberis Vulgaris Tincture, five drops in a half glass of water, a 
teaspoonful every hour or two, acts like magic. 

Tinct of Camphor, in drop doses, where painful urinating has been 
caused by the administration of Cantharis, or from the applica- 
tion of Spanish Fly. In connection with Camphor, the patient 
should drink large quantities of Flax Seed tea. 

Apis Melifica, in minute doses, where the pain is of a stinging nature, 
and the penis is dropsical. 

Carbonate of Lithia, two or four grain doses, where pain is produced 
by the passage of gravel. 

Thuja, in minute doses, is a charming remedy for difficulty in pass- 
ing urine with a constant desire. 

Fl. Ex. Corn Silk, one to two drachm doses, is a magic wonder in 
all diseases of the urinary tract. 

Sanmetto, in teaspoonful doses, is another. 

Rhus Aromatica (fluid extract), in 10 drop doses four times daily, 
cures constant dribbling of urine.

Benzoic Acid, in minute doses, for foul-smelling urine. 



220 URINALYSIS 

Apocynum— Nitric Acid— and Berberis all in minute doses, will 
clear urine of all sediment. 

Santonine for milky urine. 

Hellebore when it is like coffee grounds or suppressed. 

Arnica, Berberis, Belladonna, Hamamelis, and Cantharis for bloody 



urine. 



Terebinth where the urine smells like violets. 

Digitalis, Lycopodium, and Sepia, for red sand in the urine. 

Sepia, for a pink sediment which sticks to the vessel. 

All the foregoing remedies should be given in minute doses, 
unless otherwise indicated. 

URINALYSIS. 

Normal urine should be an amber color, and should have a 
specific gravity of 1018 to 1022. If the weight is less than 1015, 
albimin may be suspected. If 1030 to 1050, sugar may be suspected. 
The quantity of urine passed by a healthy adult, in 24 hours, should 
equal about 50 ounces. The quantity of urea should be about 512 
grains in 24 hours. The reaction of normal urine is acid. Highly 
colored urine where a smaller quantity tha,n the normal is passed in 
24 hours, indicates fever conditions. Light colored urine like water, 
and larger quantities than normal is passed in 24 hours, indicates- 
Diabetes. Strong-smelling urine like a horse's indicates inflamma- 
tion of the bladder. If urine smells like violets, it indicates the 
presence of bile in the urine, and liver trouble. 



URINALYSIS 221 

Albumin in urine may be found by boiling, or by the addition of a 
few drops of Nitric Acid. If albumin is present, a curdy mass 
will be seen. Now add slowly the Acid, drop by drop, and if 
the curdy mass continues or increases, it is albumin. If it dis- 
appears, it is earthy phosphates. Mucus in urine floats through 
the liquid. Pus sinks to the bottom of the vessel. 

Bile in urine may be found by putting into a test tube, 5 fluid 
drachms of Hydro-Chloric Acid, and add to it drop by drop 
just sufficient urine to color it. The two are mixed, to which is 
added Nitric Acid, and at the point of contact between the mix- 
ture and the colorless Nitric Acid, a handsome play of colors 
appears. If the Hydro-Chloric Acid on addition of the bile- 
urine is colored reddish yellow, the coloring matter is bilirubin. 
On the other hand, if it is colored green, it is biliverdin. Put 
Chloroform into small quantities of urine, and if it becomes 
turbid and yellowish, bile is present. 

Blood in the urine may be found by dipping the end of a small slip 
of white blotting paper into the urine, and dry over a spirit 
lamp until evaporated. Then drop two drops of the Tinct. of 
Guaiacum on the paper, waiting a minute or two to allow 
evaporation to occur; now drop one drop of Ozonic Ether in 
the center of the Guaiacum stain, and a blue color appears if 
blood is present. It may be necessary to wait half an hour for 
this color to become visible. 

Sugar in the Urine — If urine weighs 1030 or more, it may be pre- 
sumed that sugar is present. If at the same time urine is very 
pale and more than 50 ounces are passed in 24 hours, we may 
be sure that sugar is present. To test the urine for sugar, into 
4 ounces of urine, add a drachm of Baker's Yeast and place the 



222 VACCINATION— VARICOSE VEINS 

specimen near the stove. In 12 hours usually, if sugar is pres- 
ent, evidences of fermentation will be seen. This is a very 
delicate test, and is easily made. A sample of the urine should 
also be bottled and placed along-side of the sample having the 
yeast in it. By this method a comparison can be made. 



VACCINATION. 

To vaccinate a person successfully, first wash the arm with Ether 
and follow by an Alcohol wash; then pinching up a small portion 
of the skin scrape it until a little water-like substance is seen, but 
no blood ; then dip the vaccine point into a glass of pure cold water, 
and rub the Virus upon the abraded surface. Repeat this one inch 
from the first. Keep the arm exposed until thoroughly dry. Do not 
cover these spots with plasters or anything else. 

Silicea, in minute doses, will cure all abscesses arising from impure 
Virus. 

Thuja, in minute doses is the true remedy for diseases arising out 
of vaccination. 



VARICOSE VEINS. 

Pulsatilla is the true remedy, in minute doses, for diseased condi- 
tions of the veins. 

If the veins are very large and troublesome, they should be 
ligated. 

Ft Ex. Hamamelis, 10 drops in a half glass of water, two teaspoon- 
fuls four or five times daily, is a very excellent remedy for 
varicose veins. 



VOICE— WARTS 223 

Fluoric Acid, in minute doses, is said to be very good. 

Bandages, when properly applied, are a great support to varicose 
veins of the legs, as also are elastic stockings. 

Collodion, painted thickly over varicose veins, several coats, will 
completely cure them, unless they are very large. This is much 
better than bandages or elastic stockings. 



VOICE. 

Spongia Tosta, in minute doses, is a great remedy for hoarseness. 

Argentum Metalicum, in minute doses, is the true remedy for 
hoarseness or loss of voice in professional singers and speakers. 

It acts like magic in these cases. 

Drosera, in minute doses, for hoarse base voice. 

smarting feeling of the nose and throat which affects the voice. 

Arum Tryphillum and Ambrosia, in minute doses, for a stuffed-up. 

Borax, a small piece of the crystal dissolved in the mouth, relieves 
hoarseness in 10 minutes. This is a good thing for professional 
singers and speakers to do just before they sing, or speak. 



VOMITING. 

See "Nausea." 

WARTS. 

Glacial Acetic Acid, pure, applied with a tooth-pick over the wart 
or mole, once daily and avoiding the surrounding skin, will 
quickly remove them. 



224 WATER 

Rub the wart with a piece of Sal-Ammonia, dipped in water, 
once daily for a week, and the warts are gone. 

Tinct. of Thuja, one drop on the tongue and swallowed, two or three 
times a week, will positively remove all seed or Fig Warts 
from any part of the body. This is the true remedy for Con- 
dylomata (Warts of the rectum or genitals). 

Carbonate of Soda, saturated solution applied three or four times 
daily, removes warts in a very short time. 

Ex. of Mullein Leaves, applied to the warts three or four times 
daily, quickly and surely removes them. 

Thrust a pin through the base of the wart, and hold the head of 
the pin in the flame of a candle until the pin is red hot, and ouli 
comes your wart, roots and all. One wart treated thus, will kill all 
the rest on any part of the body. 

To remove warts without leaving a trace of the scar, apply a 
super-saturated solution of Bichromate of Potash once daily. 

WATER. 

God made more water and air than anything else. He intended 
to say to us thereby that we should use more of them than any- 
thing else. The person who makes a plentiful use of water, inside 
and outside, is wonderfully exempt from many of the maladies or 
diseases that afflict the common herd of humanity. Many of the 
diseases affecting woman and child-life especially, might be escaped 
by the plentiful drinking of water. Water flushes the entire system, 
as it would a sewer, and will put an end to all forms of constipation, 
indigestion, and kidney disease. The drinking of hot water, unless 
for the relief of pain, is very injurious, reducing the fat from the sur- 
faces of the body, and exposing the superficial nervous system to 



WATER 225 

severe changes of temperature, thereby either chilling the system, 
or exposing it to excessive heat. The superficial blood current is 
also chilled by this' reduction of fat. Cold water increases the fats 
of the body, and therefore, preserves its heat and its nervous energy. 

Water may be tested for its purity by filling a clean pint bottle 
| full with the water to be tested, and dissolve in it J teaspoonful 
of the purest sugar. Cork the bottle and put it where it will be 
warm for two days. If in from 24 to 48 hours the water becomes 
cloudy or milky, it is unfit for use. If it remains perfectly clear, it 
is safe for use. The boiling of water renders it perfectly pure. 

After water has been boiled and become cool it should be shaken 
so as to admit oxygen and this makes its taste natural. 

Borax will clarify turbid water by precipitating all sediment. This 
does not purify the water, it simply makes it clear. 

Water is made harmless by making it into Lemonade. 

Water may also be made harmless by adding Citric Acid, enough 
so that it can be tasted. 

A chunk of Alum moved through the water a short time, and 
all impurities will go to the bottom of the vessel. Any animal life 
will be destroyed. 

To make water soft, use the following — 

^ Orange Flower Water ss 

Spirits Wine i 

Soap lb. f 

M Fiat. Shave the soap into the Orange Water and heat 

until the soap dissolves, then add the wine. 

Sig. Tablespoonful in a basin of water softens it. and 

makes it delightful. 



--'• WEN— WETTING THE BED 

WEN. 

Paint a Wen with flexible Collodion every day, and it is soon 
destroyed. 

Cut the skin over a Wen and it will pop out like a nut out of 
its shell. 



WETTING THE BED (Enuresis). 

TJ Saturated Tinct. Graphalium Plantaginifolia 
(Mouse Ear) 5 ij 

Sig. For a child give 30 to 60 drops every night at 
bed-time. Where the tincture cannot be obtained, an 
infusion may be made of the plant. 

Mullein Oil is said to be specific for wetting the bed. 

Naphthol, in five drop doses, capsules, morning and evening, is an 
absolute specific. 

Chloral Hydrate, one grain on going to bed, is good.

lute cure. 



WHOOPING COUGH 227 

Rhus Aromatica, in ordinary doses, will cure any case. 

Causticum, in minute doses, will cure little girls from wetting the bed. 

Tinct. Belladonna, in drop doses three times daily, may be relied 
upon. 



WHOOPING COUGH. 

]? Fl. Ex. Castaneae 5 iij 

Sig. Give a teaspoonful every two hours for three days 
to a child five years old. During the night give a dose 
after each paroxysm. A few grains of Bromide of 
Potash may be added to each dose. 

Oil of Peppermint, two or three drops on sugar every two or three 
hours, is a simple but effectual cure for Whooping Cough. 

Metalic Copper, in minute doses given every three or four hours 
in alternation with Drosera, in minute doses every two or three 
hours, will cure any ordinary case of Whooping Cough in 
one week. 



Cerium Oxalate, from one-half to two grain doses, according to 
age, before breakfast every day, will cure any case in one week. 

Iodide of Ammonia, in officinal doses, is the absolute specific. 
Inhalations of Ammonia, in hot water, are very relieving. 
Verbascum alb., in minute doses, cures Whooping Cough. 



228 WORMS 

Naphthalin, in minute doses, is nearly a specific for Whooping 
Cough, as it is also for Asthma. 

Pine Needle Pillows are the proper thing for a child to sleep on. 



WORMS. 



Cina, in grain doses given in milk or oil morning and evening, will 
cure all worm affections. 

Chloroform, six drops on sugar before breakfast, and followed im- 
mediately by a dose of Castor Oil or Salts, will remove all 
stomach worms. 

Pin-worms will be destroyed by the application of Lard inside 
of the rectum. 

Salt water, injected into the bowel three nights in succession, 
will kill all seat worms. 

Oil of Peppermint, 10 drops in a tablespoonful of milk, will destroy 
round worms. Give this while the stomach is empty. 

If worms crawl up into the throat and cause choking and cough- 
ing, give one-half teaspoonful of Salt, washed down with a little 
cold water. 



TAPE WORMS. 

The only certain remedy for Tape-worm, for children or adults, 
is the following — 



WOUNDS 229 

^ Oleo Resin Male Fern 3i 

Chloroform 5 ss 

Oleo Tig. gtts. ij 

Oleo Resini q. s. add. 5 i 

Glycerine 5 i 

M sig. Shake and give -J before breakfast, and the bal- 
ance in two hours, if necessary. It is not necessary 
to reduce the dose for children, unless they are under 
two years of age. This is the absolute and certain 
cure for Tape-worm. 

Thymol, 10 grains every 15 minutes until 12 doses are taken; then 
give a full dose of Castor Oil. This also is a specific. 

Tape-worms have been removed by giving 8 grain doses of 
Salicylic Acid every hour for four hours, followed by an ounce of 
Castor Oil in which is mixed a drachm of Oil of Turpentine. This 
is an effectual and good remedy. 



WOUNDS. 

Acetanelid, ground into a fine powder and applied dry, is a very 
excellent dressing for fresh wounds. 



Iodocrol is one of the most scientific dry dressings for wounds, 
having the advantage of the stimulation of Iodoform without 
the odor. 

Aloes, pulverized and mixed with equal parts of Sub. Nit. of Bis- 
muth and applied dry to a wound, not only relieves the pain 
at once, but heals the wound without a scar. 



230 WOUNDS 

If there are dangers of suppuration in a fresh wound, dress it 
with a 10% solution of the Oil of Eucalyptus in Olive Oil. 

Onion Juice, in three drop doses on sugar every hour for a few 
hours, will prevent pain in an amputated portion. This is a 
specific. This also prevents the sensation of coldness and 
cramp in the amputated parts. 

Sailcylic Acid is a good application to wounds, but Alcohol must 
not be used in connection with it, as it would produce severe 
caustic effect. 

Salt Water is the proper dressing for wounds of the skin. 

Pulverized Sugar is as good as Iodoform. Try it once. 

Per Sulphate of Iron should be applied on lint to all severe bleeding 
wounds. After the blood has stopped, change the dressing. 

For suppurating wounds apply the following — 

5 Gypsum lb. ss 

Oil of Tar 5 i 

M and make a paste with Olive Oil. This produces a 
healthy granulation of the wound. Wash the parts 
every day with Peroxide of Hydrogen with equal parts

Everybody should take one full bath each week, and this should 
be suited to the individual taking it. "The Blast should be tem- 
pered to the shorn lamb." This phrase expresses the use and value 
of the bath. Many persons cannot take a cold bath, and such 
should accustom themselves to it by first beginning with a cold 
sponging each day over the chest and neck, and gradually increasing 
day by day until the full bath can be taken. The body should be 
well rubbed with a Turkish towel before taking a bath. Adding 
Salt to the bath and having the room warm will prevent "taking 
cold." Hot baths should be given with great caution and only 
upon the advice of the physician. Medicated baths are sometimes 
of great value.

DOSAGE 245 

DOSAGE. 

The dose of a medicine should be as near as possible that quan- 
tity of a drug which will produce the desired result, and no more. 
When the curative effect, or the aggravation, of a medicine is 
observed, it should be discontinued. This last statement contains 
the secret of the cure of disease. Whenever the curative effect of 
a medicine is seen, it has done what we intend of it, and nature 
should be left to complete the task. When an aggravation is pro- 
duced by a medicine, it should be discontinued, and nature will 
generally cure the case by reaction, providing always that the aggra- 
vation has been produced by the medicine and not by the disease. 
It is proved beyond a doubt that the small, or minute dose, fre- 
quently given, has more curative effect than the large dose, given 
less often. Drugs are proven to be more valuable as medicines b/ 
trituration (grinding), or succussion (shaking), than when used in 
their crude form. 

Triturations are made by grinding certain percentages of the 
drug with Sugar of Milk. 

Dilutions, or succussions, are made by mixing and shaking a 
drug with certain percentage of Alcohol or water or oil. 

By these methods the minute dose is made. 

Metals should never be used as medicine except in triturations. 
Plant extracts are best made in dilutions in Alcohol or water. The 
"minute dose" of a trituration is made by adding 1 part of a drug 
to 100 parts of Sugar of Milk. 

The "minute dose" of a dilution is made by adding 1 part of a 
drug to 100 parts of Alcohol or water. 

Both of these statements refer only to drugs that are not violent 
poisons. In these the proportions should be 1 to 200. 

The "minute dose" of these preparations is three to five grains, 
or three to five drops, as the case may be.

DIGITALIS (Fox Glove). 

General Indications: Digitalis has killed more patients than 
it has ever cured. Its victims may be counted by the thousands, 
all on account of its large and continued doses for heart troubles. 
It has the unhappy nature of accumulating in the system when 
given in large doses, and blossoming out with all the violence of a 
poisonous dose. It should never be given except in minute doses. 
Unless its good effects can be seen in from 48 to 60 hours, stop its 
use. Apocynum Canabinum is a much better and safer drug than 
Digitalis in dropsies and heart disease. Dose of Digitalis 2 drops 
of the tincture every 2 hours. Dose of Apocynum, 5 drops of the 
tincture every 2 hours.

IRON. 

General Indications: Pale, ashy complexions in aenemia — 
bloodless condition. This remedy is better given in connection with 
Manganese for the above conditions — Ferro-Mangan. Iron should 
never be given in large and continued doses. The human body 
contains about 23 grains of iron, so that large and continued doses 
irritate and injure the system, inasmuch as that the surplus must 
be carried off as effete matter and is very irritating to the digestive 
tract. The best form of iron is the metal itself, ground into an 
impalpable powder and mixed with sugar of milk. This is the only 
form in which the human system can appropriate iron. The crys-J 
tals in the tinctures of iron are larger than the blood globules, and 
therefore cannot be appropriated. 

Phosphate of Iron is one of the best remedies for acute inflam- 
mations of every kind, and is a specific for headache when given in 
minute doses; it wards off apoplexy by improving the conditions 
of the arteries, and must be given in minute doses. 

Susqui-Chloride of Iron, the ova of albumin, and soda, make, 
when mixed chemically, what is called Nitrogenized Iron, and it is 
a very choice preparation as an elixir, in anaemia and chlorosis.

such as accompanies the change of life; the dose should be 1 tea- 
spoonful after meals.

TONICS 

We are not made of drugs but of beef steak, and cabbage, and 
potatoes, and bread, etc., but occasionally nature needs a little boost, 
so we give tonics. Preparations that contain Malt, Iron, Strychnine, 
Gentian, Quinine, etc. are among the principal drugs used in Tonics. 



286 TOXICS 

One of the best Tonics is made as follows: 

E Fl. Hydrastis (non-Alcoholic) 5 ij 

Sherry Wine 5 xij 

^Ar and take two tablespoonfuls before each meal. 

R Tinct. Prickly Ash 5 i 

Sherry Wine 5 vii 

Glycerine .-, ij 

M and take a tablespoonful before meals. This is a natural 

Tonic. It cures Dysmonorrhea and after pains, and 

also suppression of the monthly. 

Another — 

II Strychnia Sulph. gr. i 

Quinine Sulph. 3 i 

Ferrii Chlor. 5 iij 

Glycerine g viij 

^4- and take a teaspoonful in plenty of water after meals. • 

Phosphorus, in drop doses of the tincture in water, three or four 
times daily, is a thorough Tonic for the Brain and Nervous System. 

Strychnia, in two drop doses of a 1% solution in water, before 
meals, is a good Tonic for all nervous conditions. 

Gray's Glycerine Tonic Comp., from two to four teaspoonfuls in 
water before meals, is a very excellent tonic. 

Iodine tincture, in two drop doses in plenty of water, before 
meals, is excellent for patients whose appetite is good but continue 
thin in flesh. Hence it is good in poorly nourished children with thin 
wrinkled necks, and in Marasmus. 

Epsom Salts, taken in two teaspoonful doses in cold water once 
or twice each week, before breakfast, will soon make the belly fat 
and plump. It is a Tonic for the absorbents of the intestines. 



TONICS 287 

Never give Cod-liver Oil to any patient, unless you want to ruin 
him. It is ruinous to the digestion and does more harm than good. 
Real Cod-liver Oil is a very rare article in this country. The so- 
called Cod-liver Oils are mostly adulterations and nostrums. 

Malt Extracts, if properly made, are the best Tonics which we 
can offer to a patient. Most preparations of Malt are sweet and 
sickening, or gummy and mucilagenous, and, therefore, very dis- 
tasteful to the patient. But when properly prepared and having the 
addition of Hop Extract, are a most excellent Tonic and food. A 
little thought will convince one of the value of this statement. Malt 
contains a property called Diastase and this is identical with the 
salivary ferment of the mouth, and acts the same upon all starchy 
foods, converting them into sugar. In addition to Diastase there is 
formed, during the malting process, a property known as Peptase 
and Para-Peptase. These change the proteids of Malt into peptones 
during the mashing process. It is this that gives nutritive value to 
beer obtained from Malt. Malt Extracts, if properly prepared, there- 
fore, contains a liquid more nutritious and demulcent than that ob- 
tained from any other cereal. When hops and hop extracts are 
added to the malt-beer, it gives it a tonic property, and renders it 
more valuable in Debility. Hops and Hop Extracts are known as an 
invaluable Tonic in local or general Debility, Nervous Derangement, 
Dyspepsia, Anaemia, Mal-nutrition, and Mal-assimilation, sleepless- 
ness, Loss of Appetite, Tremors, and Irritability. The best and most 
valuable preparation of this kind in the market as well as the most 
inexpensive, is made by The Schlitz Brewing Company of Milwau- 
kee. I have carefully examined into the methods and manufacture 
of this product, and can certify to it as scientific. It should be taken 
with, or after the meal, three times daily. For the Diarrhoea and 
Mal-nutrition of children it should be mixed in milk. As a galacta- 
gogue for nursing mothers, it has no equal. It is pleasant to the 
taste and has none of the sickening and nauseating sweefness of 
most Malt Extracts.
